I wondered about it too. However, HSM load them (stock# BER-338WMOTM) page 53 of 62 http://www.thehuntingshack.com/catal...roductList.pdf
Not sure of barrel length tested but they have it advertised as MV=2400 FPS and ME=3838 FT-LBS.
Most I think feel that it just doesn't have enough powder capacity to effectively propel the heavy projectile to take full advantage of its full potential out of the .338 Win Mag.
Having said that, I'd say go for it and explore ... and please do share!
Good luck and happy safe shooting/hunting.
