Will it ? Probably.
But I would not recomend it for hunting at 1000+yards. At 1000 yard Targets, it will do fine.
Look at the energy tables for 1000 yards and they will get you in the right caliber for Elk.
I use 1000 ft/lbs for deer and 1500 ft/lbs for elk. You can do it with less but I like to error
on the conservative side and use these energy values as the minimum.(A case where more is
better as long as you don't give up accuracy).
