I have used them many times (and messed up plenty too...). I believe part #     TSW-150-07-G-S     would be correct for header pins, 50 pins in a single row.

I go through housings/pins crazy fast, so I just buy them in bulk from mouser. Like enough for 100 housings - you'll definitely save if you go this route, and you can't get samples forever!

It'll only take 4 or 5 projects to use them all up, so its not actually as much as it sounds.
