It's nice to have 1200 ft/lbs for vital shots on Elk, if you find an online ballistic calculator that will give you info beyond 1000yds you'll know exactly how far you'l maintain that much energy. When I said he would most likely be the limiting factor with that setup, I meant that a 7wsm with 180gr bergers could take elk from an awful long ways, the shooter's ability is often the limiting factor. I have 2 308's, a 243, 270, 7mm, and I'm currently working on a 7wsm and 338 Lapua mag. I haven't hunted Elk for a few years.
