It is a great Elk rifle !!
The bullet of choice is a 270 gr because of velocity and range. The 375 RUM will move it over
3100 ft/sec with a long barrel (30 ") and this is a serious neighborhood.
It will take anything you want to shoot and believe it or not it wont ruin a lot of meat like
some think because the bullets are strong and don't fragment, leaving a nice exit wound.
With a good break and a mag or heaver tapered barrel recoil is very manageable.
