NEED Help with 325 WSM!!!

Does anyone shoot one of these? My best bud got one in a Kimber and we're starting to reload for it. He would LOVE around 3000 fps with a 200 gr Accubond. Is this possible? Any loads for the 200 gr and 180 TSX's would be great!

Re: NEED Help with 325 WSM!!!

Go to the Hodgdon website and you will find a bunch of .325 WSM load data. Expect that Nosler might have some available now also, they were working on it a bunch. I could not get 3000 fps with my handloads in my rifles, but did get close with factories.

Here is something I use, start around 69 gr. H4831 Short Cut and work your way up, my load is way up there but yours might be different. My load shoots very accurately, sub 0.5" if I can hold onto the rifle for three shots.
MatchKings outshoot the Accubonds in both rifles by a tad, but the Accubonds fly almost as flat as the MK.
My velocities are 2865 with M'Kings and 2845 with Accubonds with the same powder charge. Adjust the overall length a bit tho. Win. mag. primers.

Here are some drops:
200 gr. MatchKings and H4831SC powder, Win. case and mag primer
