.500 Nitro Express is a rifle cartridge designed for hunting large and dangerous game animals in Africa and India. This cartridge is used exclusively in double rifles and is available in two lengths: 3.00 in (76 mm) and a 3.25 in (83 mm) version.
The .500 Black Powder Express, as the name indicates, was designed for use with black powder. It is unknown as to who or which company originally developed the cartridge except that it was created sometime in the 1860s in the United Kingdom. Several manufacturers of firearms produced rifles and loaded ammunition for the cartridge type; however, significant differences and variations existed between manufacturers.
