Shot my elk last fall with the 200grain eldx. at 200 yards, center of the ribs, with 300 wsm. dropped in its tracks, BUT, it was blood shot from back of the ribs most of the way up the neck,shoulder and fragments in the guts ,made a real mess of it , lost 20% of the meat, I'm done with them! Have taken elk with 212 grain in 300 win. at 350 yards, it was ok.
