BUFFALO-BARNES LEAD-FREE 500 S&W Pistol and Handgun Ammo

SKU: 18D/20

Qty: - +
   - OR -   


375 gr. Barnes XPB 1800 fps

20 Round Box


This is an ultra high performance 500 S&W loading.  It is safe to use in any and all 500 S&W chambered firearms EXCEPT guns that are fed from magazine tubes.  ALWAYS use flat nose bullets in guns fed from magazine tubes.  Click HERE to see Buffalo Bore 500 S&W rounds that are flat nosed.

This spire pointed all copper Barnes XPB bullet will fly very flat and penetrate very deep for an expanding bullet. This load can be used on animals as large as Bison or Cape buffalo. If you need an expanding load that penetrates super deep, I do not know of a better or more capable one. Plus we were able to safely drive it at a super high velocity.

We were also able to use a flash suppressed powder for those who may need to shoot a camp raiding dangerous animal in the dark. If you need your revolver for defense against wild animals, chances are it will happen in low light, when animals are most active—same goes for human criminals. No sense in blinding yourself with your first shot and becoming a blind victim.

As always, we use real world firearms to generate our advertised velocities. We believe that the industry wide duplicitous practice of using extra long laboratory barrels to produce extra high velocities is dishonest to the customer as he/she will never be able to produce such high velocities under real-world conditions, where it matters. My single 500 S&W revolver has a nine-inch barrel and produced the following velocity.

➤   1816 fps -- 500 S&W X frame, 9-inch barrel

By far the best 500 S&W ammunition available. I have harvested many deer here in Michigan with this ammunition and they never make it to the swamps and wetlands. Thank you.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
