So what do you do with your .338? Why, bless me, you hunt anything you want with it--except small critters. I know at least one person who uses it as an antelope gun, because a 210-grain bullet at 3000 fps shoots very flat, and gets blown around comparatively little. However, I've found that on creatures of less than 200 pounds, such as antelope, small deer, impala, etc., the .338 destroys too much meat. A big, fast-moving bullet is highly destructive, which makes it effective on large animals, but wasteful on small ones. This applies to the 250-grain bullet as well as the 200 and the 210.
