.50 cal pistol bullets. Same as used in the .500 S&W and .50 AE and I think the .50 GI pistol.

I've used only Speer 325gr JHP in my reloads. I want to get some 400gr ones to try out as well.

.500 is what you want to use.

If you are looking for some .500 cal "frangible" bullets (300 gr. round nose) for your Beowulf, try
Frangible . I've order from them with good service. I have only shot these indoors so far (my range is only 50 feet), so I can't tell you how accurate they are.
