Knappy that is a great cartridge for elk! I load for a buddy who has a Winchester Model 70 in 325 WSM. He shoots both the 200 gr. Partition and 200 gr. Accubond and has taken several nice bulls with that cartridge and load. It's very pleasant shooting and I don't feel it kicks any harder than my 30-06. It was very easy working up a load for his rifle and both loads I have for it shoot under an inch at 100 yards - 3-shots with most being about 3/4" groups. I used IMR4350 and it worked very well for both of those bullets.
