If I was interested in 200 gr bullets and above I would go with something larger than a .30 cal. 180 gr is the highest I would ever need unless I went beefalo hunting. I got my info about the compressed loads and bullet weights up to 180gr from the nosler #5 book. As for the 500 yd elk shot......wouldnt try it any way. I live in Va. and would have to much money tied up in an elk hunt to risk loosing an elk and still having to tag it. I was just stating that I am comfortable with the 165 gr load up to that distance never said I would try a shot at a elk that far.....jugs i will.
