If you must use that small of a bullet (155) in 30 cal. , use a bonded bullet or solid and limit shots to 5 or 600 yards. And even then I don't like it for elk at any range. That's my advice anyway. I am sure there will be those that disagree.
If going long. a 210 or 215 Berger would be my choice. I use H-1000 and a Fed 215 M. I have killed loads of elk , deer and antelope with these bullets from 200 yards to 1285 from my 300 win mag. They would work very well for long range hunting in your 300 WSM.
