This 500 S&W Magnum load uses a 350 grain Hornady XTP Magnum projectile, driven 1,715 fps from an 8 3/8″ barrel. Expect over 1,400 fps from the shorter, more painful 4″ X-Frame. This round provides devastating performance on virtually any North American game, even from revolver-length barrels. Used for [relatively speaking] affordable target shooting and hunting, this load continues to be Steinel’s most popular big-bore handgun offering.
WARNING: This load has substantial recoil and should be kept away from the novice shooter.
