I would be inclined to pass on a .325 WSM.
Ammo might be difficult to find.
Brass like Nosler costs over $2.50 each.
8mm Cartridges have never been popular here. That is why the price is attractive.
The other short mags like the .300 WSM, .300 Rem SAUM, and various Ruger compact mags are sort of not popular despite having some advantages.
Should you make an offer not over $100 depending on condition and make and it is accepted you could get the rifle re-barreled to a .300 WSM or such but even then there would be somewhat of an ammo dilemma to contend with.
A re-barrel job would cost from $500-$600.
During WWII the old 8X57 or 7.92X57 having some loads that fired a 196-197 or whatever grain bullet at 2500 fps was considered a heavy hitter and the .325 WSM should do about 400 fps faster. This bullet was feared even at 2500 fps. The .325 being somewhat more than a .30-06 power range and under a .338 Win mag. Suitable for any kind of beast found in North America.
So be prepared to learn and do reloading should you get into this.
I am an old guy that hunts mostly small rodents and loads about 2000 rounds of .204, .224, 6mm, and 6.5mm ammo per year.
