Q:
I'm thinking of buying a 325 WSM for deer hunting as well as elk. Does anyone know if anyone make a rifle for that caliber with a 1 in 11 inch twist in their barrel? Chode444

Sorry, I don't know of any but am wondering why 1:11? All the .325 WSM stock rifles I have seen are a 1 in 10 twist so you can stabilize those big 200 and 220 grain bullets which will be ideal for elk hunting. The 1:11 will give you a little more velocity on the light weight bullets but if you want better performance in a lighter bullet (e.g. 127g - 175g), I would use the .30 caliber instead of the .325 to get a little better ballistic coefficient (for better retained velocity and penetration) and wider choice of target and hunting bullets. You should not have any problems with the 1:10 twist in the 325 WSM.

Awesome round! I have a Savage Mdl 16. I have shot 150, 175, & 200 gr. bullets all with great results. My favorite is the Nosler Accubond in 200 gr.. I use this rifle it for elk and deer with no problem. I shoot this rifle to 400 yrds with the Accubonds and get Sub MOA accuracy.
