Default Where to find 335gr Rainier plated bullets 50 cal?

Just ordered some Starline brass for my new Beowulf upper and Im trying to find some 335gr Rainier plated bullets. Midway is OOS and the only other place I can find any is on Gunbroker. Anyone know of any other places?

Berry's had .500 caliber plated rounds. I forgot the weight. I know they are not RAINIERS but they are about as good.

WOW they suck. I found them in the bulk section, but when I clicked they were blank.

Looks like Strong Arm Ballistics and Rainier are left.

IF OP likes 50B so much, then start up a group buy. If you get 35k bullets ordered through Rainier they will cut you a break and you can get your bullets that way. Give them a call and ask them what it takes to get them. Else have one of their people that sell them to give them a call and order some for you.

Here are their distributors:

This guy has a TON of it apparently...

Not trying to thread jack here but where is there reload data for 50 beo? I don't see any in the Lyman 49th manual, (newest) hornady manual, or the (newest) nosler manual.

I think mostly online. I THOUGHT I had seen loads at Snipershide once too. Manufacturers might have a few loads they might share as well.

I got the reload data from the AA website. It lists specific projectiles, primer, powder type, and load. All listed by brand names. I got some factory ammo for 30$ a box with free shipping from cabelas. Had to spend 100$ to get free shipping. No limit.

Sign up for notifications on Midwayusa.com. That is the only way I was able to purchase those 50 cal Rainiers. Took a couple of months to get mine. Midway's in-stock date looks like Feb 19th.

I did that. That's actually how I got my 50 beo upper 2 weeks ago. Thanks everyone. I have some 350gr Hornady FTX bullets already but the Rainiers are so much cheaper.

Do you see how excited he is at his PC cast lead bullets?

Ask santa for a casting pot and go bawlz in and cast your own lead 50 BEO...

Let's see, JUST guessing here...

Lead = 1.15/lb from castboolits.
7000gr in a lb
335gr bullets = 20.89 bullets per lb. DAMN those are heavy.

BUT, buy 65 lbs of lead for around 74.75 delivered gets you about 1358 casted bullets.

SO then, $75.00 gets you over 1300 bullets to load up.

That is pretty cheap vs buying them already made.

Once you PC them they can go to 1600 fps with NO issues at all.
