    Anyone here reload 50 BMG? Just curious as to your experience and may have a couple questions. Bought An Armalite AR-50 a year ago and it came with most of the reloading components. Been reloading standard rifle rounds for about 10 years but have never mess with the 50

    It's the same thing, only different!:oops:

    If you've reloaded bottleneck rifle cartridges before, this will not present much of a challenge. You'll just need bigger tools and a lot more powder.:D

    Was curious as to when people work up loads what increments of powder charges do they use?

    I just took a look on the Hodgdon site. Loads are 225 plus gains of powder!
