Default .50 Beowulf load data ? anyone?

I am looking to start reloading .50 Beowulf, and was hoping someone has some tried and tested "opinions" as to what they are doing with their reloads.
Thanks
( I used opinions because I know some people don't like to give advise on loads)

I use AA's published data but was wondering if anyone has used Unique powder. What got me thinking about Unique is the Lyman manual has Unique loads for the S&W 500 for a reduced load-I know its a pistol...But if you compare case volume, they are very similar. Anyone with Quick Loads want to check this? (325grn hollow point)

dumb question cause I don't reload for semi-automatics, only real guns. Don't you have to worry about the bolt not cycling for reduced loads?

If you have ever fired one of these... I think reduced loads will still cycle that bolt.
