The 50 Action Express (AE, 12.7×33mmRB) is a large-caliber handgun cartridge, best known for its usage in the Desert Eagle. Developed in 1988 by American Evan Whildin of Action Arms, the .50 ae ammo is one of the most powerful pistol cartridges in production.
The Hornady Custom 300 grain XTP load that is all factory Hornady components is something of a special round for its quality and consistency.
Yes you pay a premium, but you’re getting something that few manufacturers can match out of factory ballistically, but also the reliability and reputation of the Hornady name when it comes to personal defense and general ballistic performance.
A fantastic 1475 fps velocity at the muzzle and a nearly flawless reliability factor in guns that are already a bit touchy like the desert Eagle, this is a round that you can count on with your life if you need to.
The brass case is a premium heavy casing with a Boxer primer so reloading is possible easily; and the tolerances and load consistencies on the ignition and on the functionality side are beyond what most manufacturers are doing.
Pair that with a very clean powder charge and you are already starting to justify the premium price point for the cartridge desert eagle 50 ae stainless.
The cleanliness alone is something that can change the outcome in a self-defense scenario in seconds; it also takes the huge headache away from range fiddling when your gas system is clogging up prematurely and requires tools to clean before you can shoot again.
This is a premium round for those who want no compromises in .50 AE
The Arcadia Machine and Tool AMT Automag V was the first handgun chambered for the .50 AE.
The actual cartridge has a .547-inch diameter (13.9 mm) base, with a rebated rim. The rim diameter of the .50 AE is the same as the .44 Remington Magnum cartridge. A Mark XIX Desert Eagle in .50 AE can be converted to .44 with nothing more than a barrel and magazine change.
The introduction of the .50 AE in the US was met with a rocky start. US laws state that non-sporting firearms may not be over 0.500″ in bore diameter (measured land to land) to meet Title I regulations. The original .50 Action Express bore diameter was .500″ with conventional rifling, but the switch to polygonal rifling on production Desert Eagles allowed the gauge plug to drop through, rendering the gun a destructive device under Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) regulations. Nominal bullet diameter was reduced to the current 0.500 inches (12.7 mm) rather than the original .510″ – thus the noticeably tapered case.
