The term milksnake/cornsnake is confusing me. Are you looking for a large colubrid, or do you want to stick with Lampropeltis and North American Elaphe? Kingsnakes I think as a group are larger than both milk and corn snakes, but the rat snakes, Elaphe obsoleta, and Pitophis, a very close relative of both would probably give the biggest kings a run for their money.
Then again, if you want BIG, check out Beauty ratsnakes (Elaphe taeinura), king ratsnakes (Elaphe carinata), which are both from Asia, indigo snakes (Drymarchon) from the US, and 'chicken snakes' (Spilotes pullatus) from Central America.
