Default RE: 270...elk cartridge?

the 270 on elk,... most debated question....maybe, ....maybe not.......what about the .223 for deer.........what about the 17 hmr for coyote..........about the "neck shot" debate...... what it all comes down to is what state you hunt......after all , if you hunt elk in CO., they are small so the .270 is just fine, ....if you hunt deer in TX., ...the .223 is just fine..,, ..and if you hunt coyotes in AZ.,.... the 17 hmr is just fine...and if you hunt behind high fences... the neck shot is just fine[8D]ya right!!!
I say use the biggest gun you have for all of them....preferably a .375H&H or bigger!![]
