BUFFALO-BARNES LEAD-FREE 500 S&W - 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.

  1. 1816 fps -- 500 S&W X frame, 9-inch barrel
