I’ve used my 270 more than any other rifle for similar hunting scenarios and distances, usually under 300 yards. Based on my experience I recommend the hornady interlock for a cost-effective, game-effective, very easy to find an accurate load solution. 130 flat base, 140 btsp, 150 flat base, doesn’t matter, used them all, killed with them all, whatever your gun likes. I will say my preference is for the 130 as it seems to penetrate just as effectively as it’s heavier counterparts, prints the smallest groups in my savage, and has given the most spectacular kills. Probably on the light side for elk though.
