Looking for 50AE Load Info for 300, 325 and 350 grain

Just recently acquired a DE 50AE and got a box of 350 grain hollow points. Have been looking for load data for the 50AE and have not had much luck. Hogdon's reloading site only has a couple of entries. I have noticed there are three common grain bullets for the 50AE; 300, 325 and 350. Have not been able to find much info on reloading data and am looking for someone that has reloaded that particular cartridge. Thanks for the help in advance!

I have Lyman's Pistol and Revolver 3rd Edition it only lsit for 325 grain JHP IMR 4227, and AA#9 seem to be recomended powders.

There are a few other powders listed, though I can say that those two will do a lot of loads from cast to jacketed. From the mid range, to hot loadings.

.50 AE
325 grain Speer #4495

Do not seat shorter than 1.575 inches

No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
