The 700 gr 500 S&W we produce is unique in the sense that it has an exceptional amount of recoil. For those brave enough to fire them in a barrel 4"" or shorter, we recommend only putting one or two in the cylinder at a time. The excessive recoil impulse in these smaller firearms can loosen even the strongest of crimps in cartridges waiting their turn in the cylinder, potentially causing the projectile to ""creep"" out of the case.Yes you may shoot these in a snub nose 500 S&W, but if you're loading a cylinder full you might find yourself fighting physics.If you have any doubts, concerns, or questions please feel free to shoot us an e-mail or give us a call.
Underwood Ammo’s hard cast featuring a new “Black Cherry” coating. Equipped with new enhancements from our previous Hi-Tek coating. Our “Black Cherry” coating is a polymer-based compound; its thermal stability allows it to handle more than any other coating today. The coating will protect against gas cutting with a high degree of wear and abrasion resistance. The “Black Cherry” coating prevents lead to bore contact, thus virtually eliminating lead fouling.
Coatings special features:
- No plastic burning smell
- Thermally stable
- Resistant to weathering and chemical degradation
- Strong mechanical and tensile strength properties
- Able to withstand high pressure conditions
- Able to withstand high heat conditions
- High degree of wear and abrasion resistance
- Reduced friction resistance
- Good flame retarding properties
- Coating prevents lead to bore contact thus virtually eliminating lead fouling
- Shoot higher velocities without lead fouling
Hard cast flat nose bullets are non-expanding, powerfully penetrative bullets that are designed with your woods defense needs in mind; whether fending off wild hogs or black bears, the hard cast flat nose bullets are consistently effective in taking down any wild animals that you may encounter.
In contrast to the round nose non-expanding bullets, the flat nose bullets are able to pierce through dense bodies of mass while maintaining their nose forward position, which is optimal for maximum penetration.
Nickel-plated brass casings, our nickel plating process provides several key benefits, not limited to but including; improved feeding in all actions of firearms enhanced corrosion resistance over traditional brass, improved cosmetics, and ease of cleanup during reloading. Nickel-plated casings will not tarnish like brass during storage or when in contact with foreign materials such as leather, moisture, and other metals.
As with all of Underwood Ammo™ rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light.
While taking advantage of our state of the art testing equipment, this high-performance ammunition is field tested using popular, real firearms that our customers are most likely to own out in the real world with all the elements you would experience.
