youngbuck, the SST is designed for rapid expansion, not deep penetration. You can purchase the same weight loads but switch to interlock or interbond bullets for better performance on elk size game. They should shoot very close, if not identical for hunting purposes to the SST.

I have guided and hunted elk for 30 years. I have seen elk lost by using rapid expansion bullets on angle and shoulder hits. No reason to take a chance that happens to you. The right tool for the job is essential - there are a ton of easily accessible options out there designed specifically for deep penetration on heavier game.
