  • Anyone Load for 50 Beowulf or 12.7×42?

    Posted by james on November 9, 2021 at 3:59 am

    I just bought some Speer Deep Curl (Gold Dot) 300gr bullets to load in 50 Beowulf. Elk and deer round.

    Anyone load for 50 Beowulf?

    I have a Lee 4 die set. I have 2400 and RL 7. Load data I have seen <400gr, 2400, >400gr RL 7.

    Everything I’ve seen has H110 / Win 296 or Lil Gun with these loads

    Personally have never used this cartridge yet. But I have for 450 BM (which is similar in powder selection)

    Lil’gun is recommended in a lot of these cartridges. Just keep in mind those casings come out HOT. Lil’gun just burns hot for some reason.

    I do not have any Lil Gun. I have heard that Lil Gun is a hot powder.

    Alexander Arms load data for Speer 300gr Gold Dot lists **Lil Gun, IMR 4227, Hodgdon H4227** and **Alliant 2400** with a **CCI 350** primer. **2400** is all I have in my stash from this list of powders. I use 2400 in my hot 357 Magnum loads.

    Loaded some 500gr with 1680 just fine. The Lyman reloading manual should have what you need. I could probably get you a pic of the data. What are you specifically looking for? Load data for 50beo in 300gr?
