    Look into the 260 Accubond. I think that would be my choice because it will carry a little more velocity to 700 yds. The limiting factor IMO is how far will those bullets go and still expand. I'd trust the 260 to expand better at long range than the 300. Both have plenty of energy and frontal area if the bullet expands. Either bullet will shoot through an elk from any angle at long range. So I'd aim for bone to help the bullet open. With the 260 Accubond there is no question in my mind this is a 700 yd elk killer.
