50 Beowulf- Anyone want to take a guess?

I know its not long range, but no one else seems to help.....

Have a 50 beowulf. Load data is very hard to come by. Considering the case -- I have 325 and 350 bullets to use on deer and hogs out to around 200max.

Anyone want to toss out some thoughts on powders and charge weights? The more info I have the better I'll be.

The data I have is appx 37 gns lil gun with the 325 gn. One thing I'd like an opinion on is primers. Data shows LP mags. Dang they sure show pressure signs in my AR. Could or should I swap to LR primers. Maybe not mags though....

THanks, Jeff

Thanks, thats the 2 loads I have data on from that source. Nothing else out there. Like maybe try these powders from X to Y grains because your case is X big etc.....

I have data for the 458 SOCOM, basicly the same case just necked to 45, do any 458 and 50 cal bullet weights match up?

I have 325 grainers. Can get 350 and 400 though 400 is probably a bit bigger than I need.

I'll take any data you have on the socom and interpolate it. Is it on a tiny case head also? Have never seen data on it or a picture.

If you want, email me to my home address with data. I spent 25 minutes on the phone with Sierra and not much info. Cannot get through to Speer so far. And need to contact Hodgdon but need to know case capacity before I deal with them. Any info is welcome. The more the merrier. Hoping to fill the case with powder somehow. I don't like partial loads.

Thanks, Jeff

Re: 50 Beowulf- Anyone want to take a guess?

I in no way profess the loads to be safe, this is data provided by Quickload. This is all according to the computer and its predetermined seating depth etc...

Looked up 50 Beo on quickload and did some playing. 325gr Speer H110 50gr 78% fill 2,232fps produces 32,887psi with a max load at 52gr 80% fill producing 36,612psi and 2,312fps.

H4227 gives a better fill but higher pressure and lower velocity???

If you want me to look up some powders yoiu have, shoot me an email....topboss8@yahoo.com

It also has the 458 Socom

redman

much better that 37 grains lil gun and a not full case. I'll have to get home and drop you a line. I have a bunch of powders around but I'll go buy something that fills it close to 100 percent, given the pressures and velocities are correct. FWIW I have a 16 inch tube so suspect the MV may be a bit lower.

I guess I need to get your program somehow. Just seems like not much is made for Mac computers.....

Thanks in advance, Jeff
