Hoping to hunt elk or moose next year. Looking for a good load fir elk/moose. I have been shooting the Nosler Partition 250 gr and IMR 4350 load. Looking for more speed. I see Nosler now has a 180 gr. Partition that looks like driving it at around 3200 fps give over 4500 ft lbs of KE. DO you feel this bullet is too light? Going up to the 210 gr speeds is really cut and the KE drops to around 3500 ft lbs. Just looking for some advice, from guys that hunt elk/moose out west. Thanks!

I like the 200 gr Partition in the .300 mags....if Nosler makes a 200 gr in .338 that would be my pick. Accubond is just as proven as the Partition and will typically fly better.

I hear great things about Swift A Frame and Scirocco as well. Never used them personally but my understanding is the A Frame is a beefed up Partition and the Scirocco a beefed up Ballistic Tip.

I have loaded the 185 grain Barnes in my 338 win mag for years. Shoots great great and kills even better. I can dig up my load data if your interested .
