The static spherically symmetric self-dual SU(5) monopole solutions which correspond to stable monopoles outside of the Prasad-Sommerfield limit are constructed. These are the monopole solutions appropriate for perturbative calculations (of monopole masses, stability, proton decay and weak interaction catalysis, fermion-monopole bound states, etc.) about the PS limit. The symmetries of the monopoles as r→0 are also discussed.
