I know that the factory ammo for the .338 is more readily available. I don't reload. Maybe in the furture. Any info would be appreciated.
The 325 WSM is a 300 WSM necked up to .323 (8mm) and is reportedly has the same energy as
the 338 Win mag. It is close with the lighter bullets but not the heavy 338 bullets (250+).
If you don't reload, the 338 win mag would be the way to go.
If you like the short action, there is a new cartrige that IMO is better than the 325. It is the 338 RCM
(Ruger compact Magnum) It is the WSM necked up to .338 and the ballistic equal of the 325 wsm
with a better bullet selection.(.338 compared to .323).
Just a thought.
