Hi-Tek coating allows you to enjoy the benefits of a hard-cast projectile and the cleanliness normally seen in copper jacketed/plated rounds.
Hi-Tek is a polymer based compound* that not only reduces fouling in your barrel, but also substantially reduces airborne lead contamination (allowing for use in some indoor ranges). The elimination of the wax lubrication combined with the reduced airborne lead contamination results in considerably less smoke produced with each shot.
*Hi-Tek is NOT nylon, PTFE (teflon), or molybden
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.
All of our ammo is loaded with flash suppressed powder so that your visibility will not be compromised if you need to discharge 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. If for some reason Underwood Ammunition fails to meet performance expectations, we stand by our product 100% and will make sure the customer is satisfied with every purchase.

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.
