I’m not arguing that 500mg of test are not better that 250mg, but I do believe that for a first cycle 250mg for 16 weeks would give good gains and will also save you some money in the process.
Here my resoning, a healthy adult male produces about 50-70mg of test a week, in 250mg of test e there’s about 172mg of test, that’s more than 3 times the amount you normaly have… (anectotal evidence proves that you can gain 10-20lbs at 250mg for 16wk)
If you start off at 500mg, yes you will make better gains but where do you go from there for you second and third cycle?

I would personally say run 400/week first. And as far as proceeding from there, depending on how your body handles everything, jump to 600, 800, with a ceiling of 1 gram. There seems to be no reason to go over that for most people, as the sides tend to get worse where the benefits/gains remain about the same or go up much less in respect to ratio between gains/sides.
Yes 250/week will produce gains, but like Bushy said to someone a while back the jump to even just 400 is exponentially more powerful and will produce much better gains, without turning you into Lou Ferrigno btw, lol.
I just finished a 4 weeker of phenylprop/mast and got great gains from it, so you’ll most likely produce solid gains at 400 compared to the 250. Test is fairly cheap anyway, so I would spend a little more money and run 400 for 10-12 weeks vs. 250 for 16. But just my opinion.
good luck though,
