    When it comes to hunting elk, many hunters rely on a variety of bullet types depending on their preferences and the specific hunting conditions. Some popular choices include bonded bullets like the Nosler Partition or Barnes TSX, which offer excellent weight retention and deep penetration. Other hunters prefer controlled expansion bullets like the Hornady InterBond or Winchester Ballistic Silvertip, which provide reliable performance and accuracy. Ultimately, it's important to choose a bullet that you're confident in and that performs well in your particular firearm. Happy hunting!

    My go-to is archery but if I were making suggestions to a friend or family member, I always lean towards the 7mm family (most likely a magnum). I want terminal energy and wind resistance, and since elk like areas with dynamic winds and terrain, that will get me the most success. It’s also nice to be able to find ammo easily!

    @Chris I used to shoot 7mm mag. I like the long bullet design and function. Not much recoil and really good performance out to 400 yards+.

    @Montana absolutely. And with a decently long barrel, that moderate recoil will get you to that 4-500ish distance pretty easily.

    7 mm rem mag keeps dropping them for me. Why complicate it?
