Does anyone have any experience/loads for the .50 AE Desert Eagle with a 275 grain bullet. I purchased 500 rainier 275's and I would like to reload them. I have found plenty of load information on the 300, 325 and 335's but nothing for the 275. Please help!!?!!?

No reason to post this in two different sections.

Email Ramshot or one of the other Western Powders companies and see if they'll help. I was looking for a plinking load for 10mm using True Blue and they emailed me the reloading data I was looking for.

Thanks. After your suggestion I emailed Hodgdon. Unfortunately they were zero help with just a simple reply of "we have no load data for 275 grain bullets". Stupid. I will now try the manufacturer Rainier.

I was hoping MO might have a recipe. He seems to have a recipe for reloading nearly everything else. I will have to ask him.

Thanks MO! Da*@ your fast. I had to do something and was gonna hunt ya down an hour or so later and you already posted before my return. I spoke with Rainier and they said about the same and had a load for starting with at about 34 grains of H110.

Thanks again!
