Re: 208 a-max in 30-378
I'm sure this isn't what you want to hear seeing as how you are rushed. But that's not the best bullet for elk unless you are assured of a shot past about 800yds where the velocity is below 2400fps. I've shot the 208 Amax in my 300 Jarret. Wouldn't recommend it for close range on something that big. I'd use the 200 accubond. A little lower bc but much better for the close in shots and will work out to 1000yds or 1800fps, whichever is farther.
Just my 2c
