Hi Old Geezer .. just deleted my input , as you have now stated it's an actuation problem with the slide . This only happens with your loadings then ? ..If anyone does I need some advice.
Reloading halfway between min and max. After first shot it ejects but receiver won't close with second round all the way. Also receiver won't lock back on final round. Does not happen with factory loads. Using 4227 powder. Wondering if I should load max to get action workingWhat is your question/problem?
HI Earl 007 - Great input ! It was hard for me to give input , as the original post was kind of vague . I see that he has now given direct information re his slide problems . I went online about 10 minutes ago & looked this problem area up.I would load 1/10 of a grain under the max or equal to factory load's for 200 rounds to give it time to break in ,then go back to your middle of the road load . I use IMR4227 on my 44mag loads ect, so that powder is good to go. If that does not do it then check the ejector ajustment. Hope this helps, good luck.
Thanks Mr. Earl 007 .. You are correct with all the possible things it could very well be . I had to look this problem that he had online . They all stated the desert eagle .50AE does have it's problems . This was mostly feeding and ejecting using heavier 350 grain bullets.I don't know if it's a new gun, what weight bullet he is using, how many rounds have been fired so with the limited information I have to go with I made a guess. Now changing to a CFE powder might be the way to go ,thank's Gunner for looking it up a lighter bullet weight would result in less recoil and possibly help solve the problem.

Excellent post and Great Information from a Very Knowledgeable Source [ you ] . I learn everyday here .I tried to look up your powder choices and for some reason it was not in any of my books. I'm cheap the money I save is used, buy more guns, try that 1/10 under the max load if it works like I think it will problem solved then keep a lookout for CFE pistol. About three years ago I started changing over to CFE and Enduron powders to stop copper fouling and to make cleaning easier. The big test for me is my new Howa M1500 in 6.5CM I'm starting out with break in and all use with Enduron 4451 to see if copper fouling is over , how clean it burns and how well it groups at long range. good luck
