I use the long discontinued Speer .338 275gr. Semi-Spitzer in my Mark V Stainless 340 Weatherby Magnum.  I still find them for sale from time to time at gun shows.

If l remember right that was Elmer Keith's favorite bullet in 338

Yes I believe you are correct.  He used it in the OKH series before the 338 WM.  On a side note I also use Speer's .243 105 grain Spitzer in my Lightweight Stainless Mark V 240 Magnum.  They are long discontinued.  I find them at gun shows also.
