loads for 8mmx.338

It has been quite sometime, since I registered onto this fascinating site;unfortunately I have experienced some tech. difficulty, in seeking to participate with same. I trust my problems have abated,and that I may receive some positive responds to the following: I have a 8mm Mauser(large ring,.323 bore, excellent 24" barrel) This bolt action was built by Cogswell & Harrison in London England. The workmanship and shootability in this weapon is excellent!!!However not being content with limitations of this caliber,I've rebored it to 8mmx.338. QUESTION: Does anyone have any loading data for 8mmx.300WM, 8mmPMM(Poor Mans Magnum) or more importantly the 8mm x >338WM. All three calibers are very similar, except for slight differences,which I am aware of---neck length,water capacity,etc. I hope to achieve 3100fps+ with 180gr. or 3000fps+ with 200gr. bullets. In the previous 8 mm Mauser caliber, I could exceed approx. 250-300fps+ for 150 &170gr loading, So in my opinion, I think my expectations are not unrealistic...Can someone out there advise me??? Thanx
