Barnes VOR-TX Safari Ammunition 500 Nitro Express 570 Grain Banded Solid Flat Point Box of 200
The .500 Nitro Express is a rifle cartridge designed for hunting large and dangerous game animals in Africa and India. This cartridge was primarily designed for use in double rifles though various single shots were produced on the Farquarson action and at least one major company (Heym) produced it in bolt-action configuration. It was commonly available in two lengths: a 3.00 in (76 mm) and a 3.25 in (83 mm) version.
Product Overview 500 nitro express
Barnes bullets have historically had the reputation of offering quick, clean and humane kills. Now they are taking their highly regarded bullets to the next level loading them in ammunition. VOR-TX Safari ammunition is manufactured to precise tolerances to ensure excellent accuracy and consistent velocities, a must have when hunting some of the world’s most dangerous game.
The Barnes Banded Solid Bullets feature rings cut into the shank to reduce pressures and allow higher velocities. These bullets have a wider meplat and are designed to penetrate large, dangerous game without deflection, even when striking heavy bone. Constructed of homogenous metal throughout, they do not have a lead core or jacket to separate on impact. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer-primed, reloadable brass cases.
