They make great donors smile

I look elsewhere based on the number of bullet options in 338/375. No doubt an 8mm will work, it just doesn't do anything that the others don't.

Besides that, the 375 h&h feeds nice, shoots nice, and is an easy route to cover anything I need bigger than 30 cal.

I inherited the 325. I have 100 rounds of brass,dies, and some bullets for it. It has never been shot. It is a model 70. As it does nothing for me I am thinking of selling it and spend the money on something else. I am tempted to shoot it just to see how it shoots but wonder how much the value will drop if it has been shot.

I never understood why they ever made it. A 300 WSM shoots the same bullet weights to the same speed, will shoot flatter and retain velocity better down range. An 8mm bullet is less than 1/2 the thickness of a dime greater in diameter than a 308 bullet so it ain't going to make a bigger hole.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

The hole is 13% bigger starting out and the disparity increases as the bullets expand.

I've been unfortunate enough to inherent a few rifles and shotguns. If I were you, I'd turn it into something you like via whatever means necessary.

It's a used rifle. The value is not going to "drop" if you shoot it. It's already been fired at the factory. Why do some guys not get that? Do you vote democrat?

Well I was hoping for reasonable responses but I see it did not take long for a keyboard cowboy to show up. Being new here I was hoping this forum was not like that.

I have a Montana in 325 WSM. I love it. Plus everybody has a 300 Win Mag. Me too for that matter.

If you like the rifle give it a chance. You might be surprised.

Everything I’ve shot with it from moose to black bears and white tails DRT. Plus mine is not finicky with what you feed it.

One thing I like about it, not everybody has one
wink

Also I’ve never owned or wanted a 270…..

An elk hunting buddy in Az. likes his but he can't find the Barnes bullet he wants for it.
Priority goes to the common sizes when there's a shortage so he's using a 44 Rem. instead this year...

Seems like you can find new Kimber Montanas in 8mm WSM pretty easily. Might say something about love for this chambering. 300 WSM every day of the week and thrice on Sunday. If you're gonna go 8mm, just go with a Mouser.

Whether you shoot it or not, I don't see the value changing.


As to the thread title, I like the 325 WSM cartridge. I like 8mm's and short actions. The 325 does that combination just fine for me.


I got over the "it ain't a 338" long ago. I agree it is not a .338. These days, I don't see that as a negative. I still have, plenty of 338 Winchesters.

.308, .323, .338; fits directly in the middle of diameters.

I don't see the 300 mags having much advantage at 300 yards and under distances.

Swamplord it is clear you have nothing of value to add in this thread or any other so from this point on I will not bother to read anything you post.
For those who did make posts of value I thank you.
