I concur with Taylor. My gunsmith talked me out of a 338WM because of the excellent expansion ratio (bore versus capacity) of the 338-06. 2900 is very reasonable in 24", as I get 2800 with 200 Hornadys in 22" over the Oehler 33. I use 4320 and get no primer pressure sign or head expansion with my preferred load. I went a grain higher and got more velocity, but groups doubled. I based my setup on Steve Taylor's article many years ago recommending throating for 250 Noslers and shooting 200 Power Points, Interlocks, and 210 Partitions.
