The shooter that had to have the 250's was in the NE and ran into heavy bears. IIRC the last one he shot went over 400 lbs and he loved the performance of the 250's on heavy game. I think they would work well on elk in the timber, but where I hunt you are as likely to have a 400 yard shot as a 40 yard one.
