If you mean the 325 WSM, expect roughly 300 WSM performance.

325 magnum

Hey Hunter,
I have been shooting a 338mag for a while and if I'm correct a 325 short mag is almost the same gun. What are you wanting to hunt? I can tell you that a 325wsm will kill just about anything, but it will cost you a little more cash and a lot more recoil than many other capable rifles.

325 magnum

Hunter,
I have been shooting white tails up here in Maine for 12 years with my 338mag. It is overkill most of the time no doubt, but I haven't seen to much waste when it comes to the venison, I have tried to use 200 and 210 grain bullets. I have killed two moose with it and it works like a charm. I think one of the best things about a 325wsm would be the combination of it's range and killing power. If you can see it you can kill it. I don't know about you, but I enjoy having a rifle that earns a little respect from it's shooters.

Generally the 338 wouldn't cause much meat loss, unless you hit the shoulder. It should differ very little from a 300 Magnum.
