Re: I need some help location a load data

A good rule is start with the same amount of grains as the caliber. .50 cal = 50 grains. Work up to 150% of the caliber (75 grains) and usually you'll find your most accurate load. In a well made modern barrel you can go to 175% of the caliber (about 85 grains for a 50)for hunting.
