Yes, you can observe elastic proton-anti-proton scattering. Indeed, the cross section is not all that different from that of elastic proton-proton scattering. The main difference is that $pp$ is predominantly elastic at low energy, and dominantly inelastic at high energy, whereas $p\bar{p}$ is dominantly inelastic at all energies. Also note that inelastic ...
