My reference for killing power comes from P.O. Ackley Volume I, hand book for shooters and reloaders. On page 54 under killing power.
Acording to P.O. Ackley a Elk would require at least 1500 Ft. Lb. For a minimum striking energy. 2000 Ft.Lb. For adequate energy and for preferred energy 2500 Ft.Lb. Energy. This book gives a lot of information. Acording to this book that 6.5 120gr. Is minimum at the muzzle. Unless you are taking this Elk strictly for survival. Get more gun and check out P.O. Ackley's books.
