Ditto. The 325 is the one I go to for most heavy work. An example is setting the bevel in a GD for the first time. I do like to tape the spine when using such a coarse stone, though. Usually, since I'm just tearing off metal to get close to the right angles, I bear down on the edge more than the spine anyway. Once it is kitchen knife sharp and the bevel is even (you can shave arm hair from a 325) then on to higher grits and no tape.
