Does anyone know of a Decent Discussion forum on the Desert Eagle Pistols?
I googled and found this one http://www.deserteagleforums.com
Not much on it though, seems new.
Looking to work up some good loads without spending a ton of money.
Buy a $15 reloading manual? That's what I would do. The internet is great for a good many things, but if those things go BANG!!! I want some documented information. Buy a reloading manual from the bullet manufacturer you plan on using... please, it'll save you a face or two!
Yeah, why didn't I think of that? :roll:
I have serveral hand loading manuals and presently load for over sixty different caliber's.
Most of the manuals show 44 mag loads geared towards the 44 mag revolvers.
The Desert Eagle is a Gas Operated Semi Auto.
I went the manual route with the DE years ago and ended up burning the gas port out of several bbl's.
Blue Dot - Cycles to quick.
2400 Dirty, loud, and fills the cartridge to much.
Anyway, Accurate no # 9 powder is what you should be using for all calibers in the dessert eagle pistol. ( I had to bribe a tech at Magnum Research )
This is what IMI uses overseas for all T&E
Light loads, heavy, etc, its just hard to get an answer from the factory as they frown on handloading for their gun, as do most of the manufactures.
