We take several elk every year with a 300 win and 210 Bergers. The farthest I taken one with the 300 was this bull at 803 yards.
I would recommend the 230 Bergers in the 30-378. It is a good match. Elk at 800 will be no problem at all with adequate practice, as far as that goes to 1000 even, as long as the combination of rifle accuracy, ammo consistancy and shooter skill is there for what is required to place it well at that distance.
