130 Barnes ttsx great bullet! You need something that will retain its weight for penetration. This bullet does a great job.

I took a bull this year with the 140 grain Accubond in 270 WSM. Did a good job. All of the bullets designed for elk sized game will do a good job, but not all will shoot well out of your gun. Try different ones until you get the accuracy to shoot 400 yards.
I started hunting elk in the late 60's with a 270 in a left handed savage110. Then my favorite bullet was the hornady 150. I shot a cow that went maybe ten teps. Many years later after using the 300 Weatherby, the 25-06 and a 243, I went back to the 270 and used the then new hornady sst 150 with the same results. I switched to Combined tech. bullets a couple of years ago after using the 87 gr. bullet in a 257 Roberts with great success on mule deer. Last year I shot a cow with the Ct bullet and had a one shot kill, and not much dammage. If the 150gr. bullet shoots well in your 270 that's the one that gets my vote.
250 gr 338 TSX...
Sorry couldn't help myself.
Any of the choices are good, hit 'em in the boiler room you'll be in good eats.
I have had great luck with the 150 gr. Partition. Placement is key but a great bullet is also important. Good luck on your hunt!
Airborne1, if I may ask, how far are you confident in taking a shot on an elk. I cant disagree with a single recommendation by any of these gentlemen but there are different bullet designs for different applications; muzzle velocity, distance you are willing to shoot, size of animal, and of course several other things all play a factor into choosing the proper bullet. Any of the mentioned bullets will kill but some will be much more effective than others. I apologize if I missed the target and over thought your question but if you know your limitations or confidence distance that would help better answer the question. If I were to be general and assume a few things I would be comfortable with either the Nosler Accubond or the Barnes TTSX but again any of them will kill. Good luck on your hunt! You said 2015, do you have a hunt planned for this year?
I like 140 ABs out of my 270 WSM. I'd try a 130, 140 AB or a 150 partition out of a 270 without hesitation.
