Re: Anyone running the 325 WSM & 200 SMK for LRH?
Depends on your version of "Long range". I have a HS prohunter in 325, and have shot it out to 500 routinely. I have gone through a box of the 200gr mk, and had so-so results, I never found a load that could beat what my rifle does with the 200 accubond. I could not get groups under 3 inches at 300 yards with the mk, where the accubond will cut that in half. The rifle is my go-to gun for most hunting so the accubonds work well for me, and I have a 338 for really long stuff.
My rifle has a short throught and tight chamber so max book loads show pressure signs for me. My normal max is roughly 2gr under max book loads. I love the 325 but with the current selection of bullets I don't know if it will ever make much headway as a long range caliber.
