Have you tried any other barnes? I use 168gr TSX. You might try the MRX.
I use a Ruger #1 factory barrel, It's real picky about seating depth and charge weight/powder type, even brass affects consistency. If I do my load work right I can put three inside a quarter at 200yds.
I have gone trough femurs both front to back, and back to front on MT mulies, at 200-250yds. I have no doubts it would be fine for 400-500yd work on elk. It's way too much on my 300yd antelope, I wouldn't hesitate on sheep.
