500 S&W Ammo For Sale In Stock – 500 Smith and Wesson Ammo For Sale
500 S&W Ammo In Stock – 500 Smith and Wesson Ammo For Sale. .500 Smith & Wesson Magnum ammo is a semi-rimmed, straight-walled,.50 caliber revolver cartridge designed by Cor-Bon in collaboration with Smith & Wesson’s X Generation Team for use in their new x-frame, model 500, revolver. This cartridge was introduced in 2003 at the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show (S.H.O.T. ), and its main goal is the hunting of huge, hazardous game species with a pistol; a task not for the faint of heart or the unarmed! In fact, this enormous revolver cartridge is able to propel a 700-grain, hard-cast alloy bullet at 1,200 feet per second from an 8 3/8-inch barrel, producing a tremendous muzzle energy of 2,238 foot-pounds; enough to take on Arica’s Big Five!
Because the.500 S&W Magnum is the biggest and most powerful of the new “super cartridges,” it has the distinction of being the world’s most powerful pistol. However, for the ordinary handgun hunter, more frequent bullet weights include 275, 285, 300, 325, 350, 385, 400, and 500 grains, making this cartridge considerably more adaptable than it seems at first appearance. S & W has also introduced the.500 S & W Special, which, like the.44 Remington Magnum and the.44 Special, can be safely fired in revolvers chambered for the.500 S & W Magnum. This ammunition is intended for shooters who own or are considering purchasing one of these fine hunting handguns but are hesitant to target practice with such a powerful round.
