Talking about 338 Lapua Magnum. Lapua Scenar 250g seems to have outstanding ballistics in terms of flat shooting and energy retention, in addition to the legendary accuracy. Being a target round I don't believe it would for hunting though, so I am looking for advice on rounds with similar (or close) ballistics and accuracy that has proper expansion for hunting. Thank you.

Here in Norway, several serious long - range guys are using the (250gr.) Lapua Scenar for hunting. They seem to be very pleased with the results. You should give it a try.

Thats probably due to impact velocity too high. Matching your bullet to intended game / impact velocity. The thicker jackets of the target bullets are probably not as good at close range on soft animals.
