Favorite .325 WSM loads
I just got a Browning X-bolt in .325 WSM. What is everyone's favorite load for this caliber? I bought some Nosler Partitions, Accubonds, and Ballistic Tips. Also bought some Ramshot Big Game powder, first time using this brand of powder. Will probably get some Hornandy bullets also for practice shooting. The factory Winchester 220 grain soft points shoot good though. Thanks for your input.

325 WSM Handloads
I have tried many loads in the 325 WSM. They are pretty particular. A good shooting load is 65 grains IMR 4350, 180 grain Barnes TSX, large magnum CCI primer at COL 2.82". Sub 1 MOA groups and very deadly on large game. I shot a Bear crossing a trail in Manitoba HE made it 5 yards before expiring. I have also had pretty good results with the Nosler Accubond at 200 grains. Another good powder in this caliber has been Vihtavuori N 150. 58 grains with a 200 grain barnes tsx shot several .6 MOA groups. You can see this load on Barnes' web site. I hope this helps you.

Thanks, for your help deer charlie. I've only tried Barnes a few times and they didn't pattern good out of my guns.

Hey up there in teller county. I myself have been caught eyeballing the 325s here in the springs at a local toy store. How does the 200gr loads recoil? Any feeding issues? In other calibers, the partitions have always shot good for me, and performed. I think they have bullets on sale for the 8mm at sportsmans warehouse.
