325 wsm load help

Hey guys. I've just aquired a custom 325 wsm at the gun shop that I help at from time to time. Its a rem 700 long action with what the owner stated was a hart barrel and that's all he knew about it and he was the original owner. Looks like a #5 contour. Fluted. But its bedded (poorly) into the original sps stock. And a poorly reworked older rem trigger.
So back to loads. Ive just bought 200gr matchkings and brass. Does anyone have any starting points for this caliber?
Thanks guys

    I developed the below load with a 200gr Barnes TSX in a short action with a Douglas barrel.
    With a long action you can seat the bullet out to the lands.
    I recommend starting at 60gr and .015 off the lands.

    Winchester Brass
    Primers - Fed 215M Large Rifle Magnum
    Powder RL17 64.5gr - 3000 FPS, 3997 Ft Lbs
    Bullets - 200gr Barnes TSX, BC .421, 2.825 OAL
