TSX or Accubonds in a 300 win mag for Elk?

I am looking for opinions on which bullet to use. 180gr TSX or accubonds. Both shoot under MOA and the velocity is within 30fps of each other. Shots will be from 100-400 yards.

If you had to choose, which bullet would it be?

I would agree that either will do it, and do it well. I personally have used the tsx and think it still is a very hard bullet that will probably go through with side on shots with little expansion. But you can only kill them dead.

TSX are one of the fastest opening bullets available and start expansion in 1" of ballistica gellitin and are completely opened in 2"..... Checkout this high speed picture of a 150 grain TSX fired from a 308 Win.....

Try the 200gr TSX for Elk....Midway USA has them on sale (Federal) for $24/box....usually $42!!

I think the 200gr bullet is perfect for elk, that's where you really see the advantage of the 300 WM over just a 30-06.
