what makes a good elr 50 bmg bullet ?

I've been talking to cutting edge bullets about a 50 bmg bullet with the talon tip.
They said they could easily produce a bullet. But what would 50 bmg shooters want in said bullet ?
Weight wise ? I was thinking maybe 650gr for velocity if it can be made with a good BC.

    a good source of information of that type would be mark king.
    a top end pa gunsmith/ williamsport shooter, he also hunts with a 50.
    im told there will be regularly scheduled 50 cal matches at that club soon.

    My guess is anything you hit with M2ball is going to die!

    You may be better off asking this question at "Fifty Caliber Shooting Association", or FCSA.org

    Just shoot cutting edge 800 grain bullets I have been shooting them for two years now and they a awesome. They perform great very accurate and also expand on game. No need for anything else. I run mine at 27000 fps. The actual BC from field testing is .975

    Any idea how the Cutting Edge compares as far as BC to the 750 AMAX and Lapua 800gr? Also, Mr Stenger, assuming you have tested the A-Max and Lapua as well, how did muzzle velocity compare between these three?

    Thanks
