Cowboy Is a 150gr bullet enough for elk?

Hello Everyone,
My encore loves 150gr bullets, and I'm curious if that's enough for an elk someday. It's a sub MOA shooter with the 150's and it starts to open up significantly with 180gr bullets. I've taken a couple deer with the 150 coreloks and they didn't complain one bit, but they were under 100 yards and the bullets passed through just fine.

Knowing that elk are tougher I'd be thinking of loading up some Barnes TSX bullets over the most amount of powder I could SAFELY get. My local range only goes out to 300 yards and that's the farthest I'll be comfortable shooting because I have nowhere to practice shooting any farther.

Anyway, let me know what you think.
