If you're looking for load info just ask, guys here are willing to help out. Everyone loads differently for the bullet or app. they're using the bullet for.

If you're loading surplus a good starting point is 210 grs. of any 50 BMG powder. You can go up from there and most guys use 235 grs. of powder as a MAX but some do exceed that. You need to keep an eye on the ammo for signs of over pressure as you move up. You'll find that you'll get your best accuracy with loads between 215-220 grs.

Most popular powders are WC860 & 5010 for surplus, for match grade stuff it's H50BMG or Vhitavouri 20N29 or 24N41.
