WILDBILL45, speaks volumes. I was an elk guide in my younger years, and have been around when an excess of 100 elk were taken so I do have some experence. The 270 Win can take elk cleanly if proper heavily constructed bullets are used. As Bill said dont expect a television hunting shot. Most are taken at bad angles, longer yardages, and many times in challaging places. Though many times a conventional cup and core bullet has killed elk cleanly, many times they have failed and left an animal wounded to die unrecovered. Good luck.
