i never understood why they didn't make a 338 WSM
You didn't read much or do any research. Winchester tried to make a 338 WSM, thinking it would be a "natural". No matter what they tried, it didn't perform well, so they narrowed it down to an 8MM, but they knew enough to realize the American average shooting public nimrod looked down their noses at anything 8MM, named it the 325 and marketed it that way.
The 338 WSM was a failure of design. It's been written about plenty.
I loved my Kimber MT 325. There was no other LW production rifle in a relatively powerful medium bore at the time I got it. It was to be a plains game/elk/moose rifle my deteriorating back could pack around, and for that it was great. With a 3-9 Leupold it was sweet to carry and plenty accurate. My grandson has it now and would mess up pretty badly anyone who tried to get it away from him.
The only thing I got to shoot with it was a big cow elk, then health intervened.
