.500 Smith in Community Dictionary

many effective handgun cartridge in the marketplace at this time. Yes it beats the Desert Eagle's .50AE and Raging Bull's .454 Casull. This monster is 12.7 X 41mm (read: it's huge). In comparison, the cartridge you stick in AK-47s is 7.62 X 39mm and M16s utilize 5.56 X 45mm (interesting to note that .500 actually creates even more muzzle power than 5.56 NATO; but as the barrel is faster the power drops down quicker)... The weapon you stick this bad boy in weighs near 5 pounds packed and is a complete monster. Essentially, you shoot something using this, it dies. by LacyReport definition
a word used to express the caliber of .500 Smith&Wesson revolver. This revolver is really huge(the cartridge is like how big your flash!)it only carries 5 rounds as opposed to the conventional 6. This thing can be used for stuff like killing grizzlies, I cant imagine exactly what it might do in order to one. This thing is more powerful than a .50AE wilderness eagle. by Jacque ClevelandReport definition
