500 Jeffery - 535gr Barnes Banded Solid projectile - Display Round - INERT
This display round (dummy round) is made from a new (unfired) Norma case (headstamp norma 500 JEFFERY) and a 535 gr Barnes banded brass solid projectile.

This round cannot be fired as it does not contain powder or primer, there is no licence required.

From Norma USA by Terry Wieland:
"For many years, the .500 Jeffery was the heavyweight champion of magazine-rifle cartridges. Firing a 535-grain bullet at 2,400 fps, it delivered 6,800 ft.lbs. muzzle energy and was not surpassed until the .460 Weatherby in 1958.
For all its brawn, the .500 Jeffery could also lay claim to the title of “most misunderstood” cartridge. It was not a creation of W.J. Jeffery, in spite of the name, but a German design of the 1920s, intended to adapt surplus military Mauser 98 rifles to a serious dangerous-game cartridge.
In Germany, it was known as the 12.5x70mm Schuler, created by the old gunmaking firm of August Schuler. After 1918, with German rifle production restricted by both the Versailles treaty and fearful economic conditions, gunmakers built rifles on whatever actions they could find. Since military Mauser 98s were plentiful, Schuler set out to design a genuine elephant cartridge that could be squeezed into a standard 98 action.
This explains the .500 Jeffery’s squat shape, short neck, and rebated rim. It fills a K98 action to the absolute limit. "

I am downsizing my collection of dangerous game and big bore cartridges to raise some funds for a new project. Watch this space...
