We've killed several elk with a 308 using 150 cor-locks not at that distance but a 100 yards or a bit more. If I were you with those choices i would use a 165 grain, Load it on up a bit watching for pressure and you otta be good to go. Far more important than the exact bullet at the exact velocity, is proper bullet placement. Put a bullet thru a elks lungs and he will grace your table. In open country as you describe I wouldn't ruin a shoulder to drop em on the spot. I have killed several shot thru the heart and lungs and none have gone over 50 yards. Not that they can't go aways but in country like your talking not to far to track easy either.
