Welcome to the site Haretrigger You'll find all info you need here shortly. Patience is a virtue I'm not an expert in the gun dept. but there are lots of well informed people here. What are you planning to hunt with a more powerful gun?
325wsm is an OK cartridge, although personally I'd stay away as a general purpose hunting cartridge, especially if I were not a reloader. It's basically a 8mm bullet on the 300wsm case (note that they didn't call it 8mmWSM but yet linked it to the 338 win mag in the ads... ).
The 300wsm is underpowered compared to the full length 300 win mag (suprising but true. factory comparable loads but the 300wsm about 100fps or more below the 300 win mag). Ammo will be harder to find and costly in some instances.
I would look at either the 7mm remington magnum or 300 winchester magnum. Both out perform 270 and 30-06. 270wsm is also a good cartridge (delivers solid performance gains over the 270 win), although you are limited to a max bullet weight of 150gr, which is probably a bit light for some of the game you list.
Given The animals you are looking at hunting primarily(elk, moose) and wanting a more powerful cartridge, I'd go for the 338 win mag. It is a beautiful round for larger framed animals and the ammo is wide spread and cheap compared to some of the newer magnums.
Today's headlines read, "Hunter Dies of Heart Attack!"
I don't know how many times I have seen that headline in the past 16 years that I have lived in Colorado.
I moved here in 1994 via the U.S. Army to Ft. Carson, Colorado. The "Mountain Post" as it is sometimes called.
When I arrived here, in pretty good shape, the unit told me that I could not participate in P.T. (physical training) for at least 30 days. Now, I had just come from an overseas tour in Korea and was stationed in the...
