Excellent caliber and bullet. There are lots of field experiences and success on A-max on deer size game and smaller but not on the majestic and tough elk that I know of. I'm not saying that it will not do the job. Personally, the largest game I have taken is a mule deer with 178gr in my .300WM under 500 yards.
Most will say that there are better choices out there for elk. However, it's always nice to have someone prove us wrong.
I have not seen it compared to the Bergers but have seen plenty comparison with the SSTs. Our AUS and NZ friends have lots of success on sambar (Sambar (deer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
), if you want to use that for elk comparison.
Good luck and keep us posted.
