How to write a loop


 I need to raise a number to some large exponent - i.e. 245 ^ 500.
I know that I may run into a problem by plugging it directly. so I'd like to find the result 
by using some sort of programming loop such.
 
     DO 250 times
         begin

              x = x * 245 ^ 2

         end
     PRINT X

Can I do such programming in MATHEMATICA? Please advise.
