3" additional inches of barrel lenght will never get you 200 FPS aditional velocity with the 338 Win Mag. The 3 additional inches would yied 15 to 20 FPS per inch IMHO possably 25, but I dought it.

Use H 4831, maximum OAL and 2800fps is not a big deal. How accurate that load can be is anybodys guess.

A friend of mine shoots 1/2" groups with 72gr. H-4831/250/2820/26" barrel. Accuracy/velocity varies from barrel to barrel and one can never tell.
Chamber .338WM first and if it's no good, you can always rechamber for one of the other two.
