My son has been quite successful hunting elk with his Ruger 77 25-06, taking 3 elk only one which took a second round. He had expressed a wish for something a little heavier.  He has an extreme fondness for the AR platform so...as an early birthday present he received a Springfield Armory Saint Victor in .308. I mounted a Vortex Victor 2.5 X 10 on it.  The only drawback in my opinion is the 16 in bbl.  That puts it in the .300 Savage category, but with a quick follow up shot if need it should prove to be more than equal to any elk at moderate ranges. BTW, that SOB shoots.

It should work fine. My AR-10 has a 20" barrel.  :)
