Red Dot/Promo recipes for .500 S&W?

Postby Morne » Wed Jan 17, 2018 10:20 pm

All,

So lately I've been loading up some CAS .38Spl loads that use Trail Boss. I had ALMOST forgotten how horribly this stuff meters.

So right now I have only two (2) uses for Trail Boss. Light CAS .38Spl loads and light .500 S&W loads. In fairness, with the .500 S&W loads I use a 1.9cc dipper so the metering issue isn't a big deal. Still, if I can use Red Dot/Promo instead it would be better. I have alternate CAS .38Spl loads using Promo that work great for me.

My google fu fails me in this case. Anybody know of any Red Dot/Promo data for plinking .500 S&W loads?

Sorry, didn't see anything on HandLoads.com or LoadData.com. Saw some Blue Dot loads and other Alliant powders, but nothing using Red Dot or Promo.

Maybe someone with internal ballistics software can figure out a starting load for you to work up from...
