Re: 6.5mm 140 SST for Elk???
Would not use the SST on elk. It is very much like a Nosler BT and might not penetrate deep enough. Also, high velocity on a short shot could blow the bullet. Personally, I would look at Barnes TSX or XLC in 140 gr. You can get 3,000-3,100 out of it and know that it will stay together and penetrate.
