Default I need some help

Going elk and muley hunting in Colorado in a few weeks.
Using 300 WBY
180grn bullet. But which one should I use.

Spire Points
or
Barnes X Flat Base?
or
Nosler partition flat base?
or
Nosler Ballistic Tip?

These are my choices that I know I can pick up here locally pretty easy. So if you have a preferance please let me know. I wanna know the good the bad and the uglies.

Lasy year I used my Sako .270 with a Hornady light magnum and killed out for both. However I felt a little under gunned for the distances I could have shot.

You'll enjoy that 300 compared to the 270. You can take anything out to your comfortable shooting range. Throw out the ballistic tip, those seems to break apart and not retain their energy on larger game like elk. The barnes X and the partition are both excellent bullets. I'd say which ever is more accurate in your rifle is the winner.
