I have hunted for years with max handloads for my 338 Win Mag with great success. As I get older, those loads kick harder than they used to. Funny how that works. My loads were slightly under 3100 fps. with a Nosler 210 gr Partitions. If I drop the load by 2-3 gr the velocity will be in the 2800-2900 range, still plenty of killin' power for elk etc. Any of you older fellas doing this or do you you just move down to a 30-06 or 270 Win?? Sucks to get old...but that's Gods plan for us old guys!
