    There are Multiple BEST ELK Caliber's ! Prob Easier to argue -discuss POLITIC's then these ! BUT in saying that its hard to BEAT the 28 + calibers with 160-250 gr bullets to PUT them down ! jmo RJ

    I'm going use my 300 PRC this year in the Koot's with a 200 gr Accubond !

    As RJ says . . . many 'best' elk calibers.
    In G-bear country, the potent .30's or .338 would be a good choice.
    Just an opinion . . .

    agree with quadra kid, whichever one you shoot best " that is legal for elk"

    disclaimer: I'm a 7mm-08 shooter

    in all reality, I don't know if you can say what is best. If I had to say what's best I'd probably say 30-06 because it can do it all.

    Premium bullets(TTSX,Partition etc) and 270Win will do. There really is no best just a lot of really good ones.

    Shot placement beats caliber every time.

    Yuppers everyone,I should say I'm aware of there not being a best,but for argument sake I'm curious as to what might be the overwhelming consensus.....I have a 300Win Mag but the weight is a bit discouraging to drag around(not a huge deal but.. )...looking at 30-06,a bit less of kick and great ballistics
