Has the octogon barrel pretty rifle...

Just got it and bought 3 boxes of ammo and some bullet's to load with.

Here is my question load data is scarce for the 325 wsm What powders tend to work best with the wsm's the slow ones like H1000 or the med mag like 4350?

Is this the equal to the 8 mm rem mag like it is supposed to be?

Power is between the 8x57 and 8mm Remington Mag.

Nosler data:
3283fps for 180gr in 8mm Mag, 3083fps for 180gr in 325 WSM, 2667fps for 8x57.

I opened up my Lyman 49th. There is quite a bit of 325 WSM load data in there. The 325 WSM case is necked up from 300 WSM, so it doesn't have the capacity of the 8mm Rem Mag, which is a full length 375 H&H case.

So for the 325WSM, it looks like R19, IMR 4350 for the smaller bullets, and H4831, IMR7828, and R22 for the heavier bullets.
