The .500 S&W cartridge is a relatively new round introduced at SHOT Show in 2003 for the Smith & Wesson Model 500 revolver. It is designed as a hunting round that can bring down any game animal found in North America.
Magtech ammunition is loaded in Ribeirao Pires, Brazil (near the larger city of Sao Paulo). Manufactured by CBC, the largest defense contractor in Latin America, it uses non-corrosive Boxer primers and brass cases.
