    A friend wants to load up some 325wsm on my equipment with my supervision. I have the rcbs dies and three different types of projectiles Nosler Partition, Ballistic Tip and winchester brass ( both bags of brass said they contained 50 pieces but had 60 in them:)). I have many types of rifle powder but only winchester mag primers. I thoght I would have him bring his rifle so that I could set the OAL to his chamber and create a dummy round to use as a reference. Because I'll be loading different projectiles I purchased a Hornady BULLET COMPARATOR to set OAL from the ogive.
    Retail price for this ammo is $50.00+ per 20 rounds so he will be saving a ton.
    We will be useing data from winchesters online site to start with.
    Any advice for loading data or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, Ron

    325 reloading

    Google 325 loading data. Then look at the tables for reputable sites such as Alliant or Hodgedon and see what their tables recommend as far as primers, powder, OAL and such. Then.....look at some of the private posting for reloaders who have spent some time tweaking their own loads. Compare them to the manual or your reliable online source and proceed at your own comfort level. Remember, anyone can post anything to the internet. Always compare sources if you are not using the actual manual.
