Re: 7mm rem mag & elk
Like JDJones said, welcome to LRH.
And, like both guys said, the 160 Accubond in the 7mm Rem Mag will work just fine on elk. They have a really bad reaction to being hit by one in the right spot. They die.

I've used them on 3 elk in 7mm mags and all were perfect performance. Also used them on several deer and have only recovered one.
