That is if you want one load for everything.
If it were me, I'd step up to the 180's for Elk. Higher SD is going to give you better punch through tough body mass.
As for range with the 160-170 weight class bullets I'd say limit yourself to 450 on elk, 750 on deer.
Move up to 180's and you can safely I'd think go to 600 on Elk and 1,000 on Deer without much trouble as long as you can place the shots properly.
