Elk Guide... really?
I guided a few elk hunters, over 30 years time. Even outfitted a little, 9 years. The 7 mag is my favorite round of all; capable of really long range elk sniping, if you can shoot, and it won't kick yer pants off.
And don't tell the elk we shot with the old '06 at over 250 yards, some as far as 500 or so, that they should have just run off instead. I just hate it when elk go all zombie and rise from the dead all stinky and falling to pieces.
