email on the way! well ya may be in luck, 3 of the loads for the 458 w/300 gr. bullets fill the case over 90%

Oh BTW, near as I can tell the 458 is the same case as the beowulf except necked to 45 cal and bigger rim. The parent case is the 50 AE stretched from 1.3 to 1.7"

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

I use 38.5 gr of h4227 and a 300gr speer hp, primer CCI 350 mag pistol. 20" barrel. @ 25 yards on the money, I can take the 10 ring out no problem, but @ 100 yards consistant 1/4 ->1/2" off the bull (which is the size of a 1/2" dollar. sights-- Red Dot w/o mag lens. Best load I've ever tried for the wulf. loading up a few for my smith.

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

The new Hornady reload manual has 50 beowulf reload data. Similar to mine to which I use H110 for powder. I've load 275 XPB and 375 XPB Barnes, 300 HP and 350 HP hornady. and 400 FP speers. Barnes work the best. The 275 XPB has a hollow point deep enough to use as a shot glass. Impact is like the fist of God. Going to try some 300gr hornady FTX lever bullets next. Cheaper then the Barnes. Pointed bullets tend to feed better too. The 400 flat point speers don't feed well. 375XPBs feed the best so far. As far optics, I'm using a Bushnell Banner Shotgun Scope 1.75-4x 32mm. This provides you with a longer eye relief so you don't get scoped. Great scope for the range of the weapon.
My 2 cents
