RE: .270 too light for elk?

My friend has taken numerous elk with his .270. He uses a Trophy bonded bear claw, and the performance has been great. If you do your part in placing the bullet, the bullet will do it's part.

RE: which size optics do you prefer for hunting and why..

For big game out west, I use my 7x42 to spot movement. Then, follow it up with my laser rangefinder at 8x30, then my rifle scope. For bowhunting, I use my laser rangefinder (8x30) only.
