Just don't try any quartering away shots from 300 yards.

I've never had to opportunity to hunt elk, but a 280 will certainly shorten the like span of a bull mose in a hurry. Shot placement always critical regardless of calibre.

280 Remington shooting 160-gr. Nosler AccuBonds or Partitions is great elk medicine. If this fine cartridge had been introduced 3 years earlier, then Winchester might not have even brought the 270 to market and we'd be ranting about the improved 280 Rem rather than the 270.
