    fmsniper, Ian M just did a piece on LR using the 325WSM. It appeared in the North American Hunting Club. You might search the last two or three months and locate it. Only thing I've seen on LR using the 325 WSM for that application. Ian's concluded was that it should work.

    jro45, yes the 325 WSM uses an 8mm bullet (323). Winchester for marketing purposes, rounded up their caliber designation to sound better. 8mm doesn't sell well in the US!
