.50 Beowulf

.50 Beowulf
Warning! Notes: The 50 Beowulf is the brain-child of Bill Alexander of Alexander Arms and was intended to give AR-15 users more knockdown power than the Thompson and M-3 grease guns firing the 45 ACP. It certainly fulfills that requirement and in addition makes a useful rifle for large game hunters as well. Using modern bullets, like the 375 gr. Barnes X at well over 1900 fps, the 500 Beowulf surpasses the powerful 500 Linebaugh and S&W pistols, the "big fifty" (50-90) Sharps and the 50-110 Winchester buffalo rifle in energies and virtually duplicates the original English 500 BP nitro.
