    I can tell you for sure that the 140 gr 6.5mm and the 162 gr 7mm will knock whitetails right out of their hoof prints. Between 50 and 400 yards I have not had to track one yet. I would imagine the 208 out of a RUM would do even better. Can't help you with elk, haven't been that lucky yet.

    Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.

    As Chris said I think they are great for deer but I would not be comfortable with using them on elk.
