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

Re: 325 wsm load help

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
