Usage: Click on the table column header or on the any round to see all reviews for the specific caliber; Click on the manufacturer name to see all reviews for that particular manufacturer's ammo.

Disclaimer: Here is all the information that I have so far about different ammunition for Desert Eagle. Please note - all of the cartridges on this page are reviewed from "Is this one good for Desert Eagle?" point of view, thus if you see negative review on any cartridge, this only means that this particular round is not a good choice for DE pistol. This is just an opinion which comes either from me or anybody else who was kind enough to provide that information, so the final choice is yours (of course).
   In several places, when talking about the similarity between two rounds, I mean the shooting process (unless stated otherwise), muzzle flash, flip, controllability etc... and not the bullet effect on impact with the target.

Goals: Although Magnum Research Inc. distributes The list of Magnum Research Recommended ammunition for Desert Eagle Pistol, I don't think that the information provided is complete & always up to date. First of all I didn't get this list with my gun and this list can not be found on MRI web as well :( the point is, the list is incomplete, so why don't we help each other & share our experience ;)
    Generally speaking, the goal is to collect all the live experience information about Desert Eagle ammo, what is good to shoot and where, where to get the ammo for a better price, what should be avoided and why. All the information on this page is provided by people who fired particular rounds in significant amounts (one hundred or more).
Round specifications are shown as advertised by their manufacturers.

Please: Feel free to help me to fill in the gaps on this page. As you can see, I have no info on several cartridges, and it would be nice of you if you could provide it. Also don't be shy and correct any errors that you may find on this page. I hope this data could save some time and money for someone, avoiding experiments with unfamiliar, sometimes expensive rounds ;) If you have any information related to any Desert Eagle ammo, places where you can get ammo for cheap or think something is incorrect or missing on this page please Contact me. I'll be glad to add your info and your reference (in any form you'd like) on this page.
