I too am a huge fan of Elmer and his .333 OKH.

My findings: It wasn't a whole lot better than the 30-06, except you could push the 250 grain bullets, but not as fast as a magnum. This limited the killing ability of the cartridge to about 250 yards before all steam left it.
If I wanted a magnum I would get one. And I seriously doubt that it is too weak to take game past 250 yards. Thats ridiculous. I know for a fact that guys have taken african plains game past 400 yards with a 35 Whelen before modern powders and bullets.
