270 for elk?

I purchased a Savage Edge in 270 caliber for antelope and mule deer, can I use this to hunt elk too??

Yes you can, know your limitations and your fine. Will you be reloading? If not the 140 grain nosler accubond would be a good round, or even 150 grain partition if shots aren't too far. My dad has used nothing bigger then a 270. Win and he is an avid moose hunter, caribou hunter and recently got into elk hunting.

My wife took her first elk year before last with a 270 using 150 win factory ammo, one shot 392yards. Just need three things 1: Shot placement 2: Shot placement 3: Shot placement.
