In my opinion That a negative there ghost rider..
For me personally bare minimum of 1500 ft/lb on elk and 1200 ft/lb on deer. Then again I don't like chasing wounded critters. Specially when they have over a 1/2 mile head start on me.
Use a heavier bullet in your 300wm you will be way better off with your long range shots.
