    i wouldnt be afraid of using a 117 grain bullet as long as its well constructed and the shot and placement are good i see no problems with it

    I agree with The Captain shot placement is everything.

    Good question.
    I would say that a 117 grain bullet is not optimal for killing elk, however shot placement is everything.
    If you can take a broadside or neck shot, then I can see nothing wrong with shooting the round at elk.
    Just know your limitations, in that you cannot force the shot (running, walking away, etc).
    I have seen elk killed with .243s the went out like a light.
