I was an elk guide for 9 years and have been in on the taking of @100 elk. I have seen about every caliber used including a 22 lr from a handgun. A 270 is a fine gun to @350 yards from my limited experence. I have killed 3 or 4 with the grand 270 WCF. I have seen about a dozen shot with a 270. I photographed an oldtimer with his old Winchester model 70 in 270 WCF, used to kill over 100 elk. So to put a fine point to it, yes the 270 is quite adequate for elk. I am extremely found of 150 grain
