Well, as many of you know the wsm debate rages on. Many say it's all hype. I really don't care. But, for those of you who are considering buying a .325wsm here is my experience with a Kimber Montana with a Leupold VXIII 2.5-8x36. I wanted to replace my wood stock Ruger 06 with a light weight, all weather, all around caliber with more punch than my 06. So I bought the 325 Montana. I'm shooting 200 grain Accubonds. 1 inch groups at 100 yds. 3-4 inches at 200. Best I can shoot anything.
12 day, 50 mile walkin sheep hunt. Nice to carry a 7lb 2oz rifle. Lots of rain, mud, brush busting etc.
Aug 12th. I killed a Dall sheep with it at about 350+ yds. Shot up hill, hit him low. High in the lower leg up through the brisket and blowing out the far shoulder.
Aug 14th. My partner killed his Dall sheep with it also after his gun jambed. Double lunged him at 200 yds. Poked a nice hole right on through. Broke a rib going in and out.
4 Wheeler Moose hunt. The Yamaha Griz didn't mind the 7lb 2 oz rifle either
Sept. 9th. I shot a 40 inch Moose at about 350 yds. Hit him in the hump. Shattered his spine and dropped him. Recovered the bullet under the hide. Perfect mushroom. If I can find a scale I'll wiegh it.
So far so good. Don't beleive the anti-wsm hype. They kill critters as dead as any other calber.
