I am planning my first elk hunt for next fall and need some opinions from the bullet gurus. What would be your opinion of the Sierra Gameking 180 grain boattail softpoint as to performance on elk? I am not familiar with Sierra and its reputation. This will be Federal Premium factory ammo. Thanks.

They would likely do just fine, but if I were going on a big trip out west I would be shooting Nosler Partitions.

I would opt for a premium bullet out of that case.

If I'm going out West on an Elk hunt, I would would be shooting a premium bullet as long as it shot well in my gun. No sense in saving $ on one of the most important factor of a hunting trip.

I would be using 200 pertition with that gun. The samething I will use out of my 300 ultramag if I go back. I have a friend
that lives in Colorado and has the same gun and uses the Nosler
200 pertition out of his.

The 200's carry alot of energy. So you can reach out there and
touch them.
