    If you are looking for loading data, you might research data for the .440 Cor-bon. I had a 10" barrel for mine, and I made cases by running .50AE cases into .440 full length die. The cartridges are...

    Well, good luck with your sight, I put a Tru-glow red dot on my .50AE, and it lasted all of THREE shots before disintegrating before my eyes! That's why I went with a Bushnell 2x scope. Hundreds of...

    I bought my Smith & Wesson .500 magnum in 2005. I bought a box of Corbon 440 grain ammo, the 1650 fps loads. A box of TWELVE rounds cost me $36.00! Thats THREE DOLLARS per round! I sent off for a...

    I wonder why Kahr doesnt just chamber the Desert Eagle for .357AMP? It's easily a 50psi cartridge, and would make a really flat shooting cartridge for the Eagle. I had an original Automag in that...

    I've noticed it with mine. Some say I'm not gripping it tight enough. So, I gripped it tighter. Still hit me in the head. I think what it happening is the gun is rotating to the left and then the...

    I went to the range today, try the 350 grain Berrys with just the iron sights. I wasn't too happy. I'm gonna put a scope back on. The groups were ok, but too easy to flinch with the metallic...

    I dont know anything about the after-market type carbines, but the G.I. carbines went together the same way, and the ordnance department said to stake em! I believe that's what I would do. Don't...

    Berry's 350 grain bullets, 50 cal

    Has anyone tried these in the Desert Eagle .50AE?. I bought a box at Cabelas, and thought I would try
    them in my DE. If they don't work, I can always use them in my .500 Smith.

    Recovering .50AE brass at range

    What do other members on here use to catch brass, at public ranges? I've been thinking of trying to adapt a brass catcher made for AR type rifles, attaching it to the rail on top of barrel, but in...

    Exactly my situation with the Williams Firesights too, MrBlackCat. I had the rear sight all the way down, and still was shooting high at 25 yards. I called Dawson Precison, explained the situation,...

    Jeepster09 is exactly right! Desert Eagles remind me of Thompson-Center contender single shot pistols. You start out new and pay big bucks for them. But wait til you try to sell it! You will...

    When I had a .440 Corbon barrel, that is EXACTLY the way I made brass. Simply run the .50AE brass into the .440 Corbon sizing die. Voila, I had .440 brass. I shot many rounds through that .440 10"...
