I took the .50 Beowulf, my Sa-93, Inland .30 Carbine, Russian SKS, and my ASA 9 MM AR with a Stikefire Vortex RedDot, Gemtech Trinity 9 MM suppressor on it for fun.  I loaded up some 300gr Rainer Plated HP's with 37.7grs of LilGun, some of the 275gr Rainer HP's with 37grs and some of the Hornady XTP 350 gr JHP's.  My first shot  with a clean cold gun were with the 350gr XTP with 35.4 grs of Lilgun. Right dead center where I was aiming. The next four where a little bit above and right of the first shot in almost one hole.  Next I tried the 275 gr Rainers with 37.0 grs of LilGun. I had been loading them with 37.7Grs. I wanted to see if they shot any better with a lighter charge. I got 3 through one hole with two flyers. The group was less than 3".  Next in line was the 300 Gr Rainer HP's with 37.7grs of Lilgun. Again about a 3" group with 3 through the almost the same hole and 2 flyers. The gun does seem to shoot better when it is cool.   I played around with the .30 Carbine for fun with some RCBS Cast 98 Gr SWC's for the 32 HR Mag sized to .309 over 4.5Grs of Unique. They will eject but do not have enough oomph to pick up or lad the next round. They shoot ok. I didn't have the gun sighted for them so it was just group size.  I checked my Midway Order History and I have ordered almost 2000 rounds of various .50 Bullets for the Beo. Most have been the 275 gr Rainers. I don't think they leave enough of the bullet seated in the case if they are loaded to an OAL of 2.110". I think tha t is why I get flyers. I will stick to 300Gr and heavier from now on......When I get a minute I will post my 9 MM ASA Suppressed to you tube.......

Loaded up a bunch of the 275 Gr Rainer Plated HP's seated to 2.050" instead of the 2.110" They were loaded with 37.7 grs of LilGun, each weighed on an electronic scale. They grouped a lot better. :whew: The 335's loaded with with the same 37.7 grs Lilgun shot good too.  They were seated to 2.110". Played with the little 9 MM ASA AR but took off the Strikefire Red Dot. Put the old Copy of a Colt 4X scope on it, it's shoots much better than the red dot 1X, easier to see at 50 Yds.  Here are a few of the 275gr Rainer HP's over I think it was 38.0grs of LilGun, shot into two 1 gallon water jugs stoped by an out of date vest, 100 yds............
