    Attention .500 S&W Magnum shooters

    I'm starting to do an updated list of loading data for this cartridge, for people who use commercially available bullets and not my custom long-nose designs.

    If you have some bullets on hand and a dial caliper, let's get a chart of info going to help me out.

    Example: Lee 440 grain FP gas check cast bullet: Bullet length xxx, base to lower crimp groove yyy, base to upper crimp groove zzz.

    I'll take it from there.

    I ordered some cast bullets from Matt’s and from Badman bullets. I’ll get the measurements and some pics for you.
