Hunting & Shooting with the 500 Jeffery (12.7×70 Schuler)

The 500 Jeffery, like the big bore nitro express cartridges, was developed for taking dangerous big game at close range, by intrepid hunters on foot in heavy cover, using single-shot or double rifles.

Sure, you can load lighter projectiles, and lighter powder charges, but on this site we remain true to the original intent of these hefty calibers; that is, a heavy for caliber projectile at maximum velocity.


Aussiehunter invites readers to submit a story, or additional information, about this caliber.
