First of all, welcome to the site. Second, your bullet choose should do fine with elk. Although I haven't hunted elk, I wouldn't hesitate to use them on moose so they should be OK for elk. Good luck on your hunt. Keep us posted on your hunt.

I like the numbers for the 150 gr Nosler Partition bullet in the federal round.
More than 400 ft/lbs energy @ 200 yards than the lighter 130 grainers.

Here's the federal Ballistic table where you can compare all the data
