Recoil Disclaimer: Like our other .500 S&W offerings, our .500 S&W +L loads are loaded within SAAMI pressure standards. Unlike our other offerings, these loads feature specialty bullets and longer cartridge lengths. This translates to higher velocities and greater felt recoil. They are perfectly safe to fire in any .500 S&W, but it is strongly recommended that the shooter fit a muzzle brake to his handgun (including the S&W X-Frames) prior to their use (see our Services tab or the Muzzle Brake Adaptors available on our online store for options). Do NOT fire these rounds from a non-compensated firearm.
See slow-motion footage of the recoil comparison between a factory S&W 500 compensator and our TII Brake Adaptors.
Brass Discount: If you return your fired .500 S&W cases to us in good working order, we will discount $0.60 per round from any further ammunition loaded from the cases. This works out to $12 in savings per 20 round box of ammunition. See our Services page for more information on this process.
DISCLAIMER: Since we offer loaded ammunition in our online store, we restrict shipments to Alaska, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, or Washington, D.C. If you are interested in loading components, dies, or other non-restricted products, we can ship them to you if you reach out to us by email. See our Services page for further guidance on how to do so. As always, it is up to you to be aware of your local laws.
