Introduced in 2003, the .500 S&W Magnum is the most powerful production handgun cartridge in the world – suitable for hunting any size game.

It has two primary design purposes: as a hunting handgun cartridge capable of taking all North American game species, and to be the most powerful production handgun cartridge to date.

The .500 Smith & Wesson Magnum was designed from the outset to be the most powerful production handgun cartridge. The .500 S&W Magnum is a semi-rimmed, straight cartridge optimized for use in revolvers.
