Anyone have any starting load data using H50BMG powder for AP, API or APIT rounds? I posted this same question in the Reloading forum with no bites.

215 grs.

You'll probably find that somewhere between 210-220 grs. will prove to be the most accurate.

I'd start around 210-215gr and work up from there...
My BFG shoots best at around the 215gr mark with either IMR5010 or 50BMG and 220 when using VV20N29.

If this is for an M2HB, then 218gr works great in mine.

Will this charge work for all three projectiles? There is a 90 grain difference between the API and the AP projectile.

Start out at 210 for the API and work up a load from there.
