Barnes has a 175 gr in the TSX and and for Elk you can never go wrong with 175 Nosler Partition some guns dont like the Partition but if you can get them to shoot out of your rig thats a no brainer for elk .......I shot a cow with a 160 Partition and she she never took a step .....

That being said, as with any monolithic bullet, you can actually go a step down, and still have enough bullet. I know of folks that have taken elk with a 270, and 30-06. So, ( and I can feel the frowns already,), but I wouldn't feel under classed using this bullet on elk. I chatted with a guy on here a while back, who did just that, and that bullet did it's job, and dumped a HUGE elk with this same bullet. There may be better choices, and I get that, but I guess what I'm saying is that I would not discount it as a possibility if I were to fortunate enough to go elk hunting.
    I also have a love affair with a Nosler partition. Smoke one with a 160 partition, and you will have a elk to clean. The 175 Partition is a timeless 7mm favorite, and also will do well, as expected. Sometimes, they CAN be a little difficult to get to shoot consistently, and point on accuracy, but if you can get them to fly right, your search is over! One of my STW's loves the 140 partition. My #1 sendero likes the 160 moly coated bullet quite well. Take care, and enjoy your search!

Got a brand new Brux Barrel, new stock. I have the reamer.... hahahhaah I am just not impressed....
    But, that being said, I do need to break the barrel in so those may work, or I'll load my own...

    Hearing your surprise with the accuracy, makes me want my gun faster!!!!! hahahaah keep shooting!!!!
    Well you know where you could have sent it....just saying lol.

    I know Ben!!!!! Believe me I am regretting it now. Gonna go out there and pick my stuff upand send it. I want a local guy but work ethic in Vegas SUCKS!!!!! I can not believe how poor ethics grow here. I guess I was raised to do as I say and I look at business as a reputation. Not just making money!!!
    Anyway, can you guide me on how to get this thing to you??
    Thanks Ben

    All that needs to happen is get everything in a box and ship it to us at the address listed in my signature. Do you want me to us your reamer or mine? You can ship it USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc...whatever you want. I have STW ammo to use to test fire so no ammo needed. If you want me to shoot groups with it before it leaves I can either mount one of my scopes and shoot it or you can send yours. I'm starting a batch of custom builds tomorrow as I just received a barrel shipment today (9 barrels). If all goes well, I'll have my personal gun barreled by Wednesday this week.
    Also, our website is back up and running if you want to check out some of our rifles and custom builds

    7stw, thanks for the input, i have shot several elk with my browning 270 with nosler partitions, and they worked very well. I quess i am stuck on thinking i need a heavier bullet, but i think it may all be in my head. I dont disagree with anything you said, and it is very much appreciated.
