50 AE Ammo

.50 Action Express is one of the best known large caliber handgun cartridges. In Hollywood, it's used for just about everything including warfare and law enforcement; back in the real world, shooters primarily use this round against large game and predators where its massive power can be put to best use. When used in a hunting role, the high recoil and bulk weapon size associated with the caliber are much less of a liability.

.50 AE ammunition fires a heavy bullet at a high velocity; projectiles with a weight in excess of 300 grains are not uncommon. A velocity of 1,400 feet per second or more combined with the latest hollow point designs from Speer, Hornady, or other manufacturers helps produce high diameter expansion. You'll find the latest ballistic technology from those manufacturers for sale here at Widener's.

Notable firearms chambered to use .50 AE ammo include the semi-automatic Magnum Research Desert Eagle and the Freedom Arms Model 555 revolver.

    George Washington. Napoleon. Julius Caesar. None of these geniuses ever heard of the 50 Action Express – but if they had, then they surely would have approved of Underwood’s fine American-made hunting and self-defense ammo. (It’s not like anyone can prove they wouldn’t have!)

    Underwood loaded this round with one of the most popular jacketed hollow point bullets on the market: the eXtreme Terminal Performance, by Hornady. The 300 grain XTP is an accurate little number thanks to its jacketed rim which preserves its sleek frontal profile during feeding, as well as its swaged lead core and concentric gilding metal jacket which keep it rotationally stable. The XTP’s drawn gilding metal jacket possesses varying thicknesses throughout its length, which are designed to help it sink deeper into its target whilst simultaneously promoting wider and deadlier expansion. The XTP’s jacket is also serrated around its rim – yet another reason why it initiates expansion so reliably, even when less momentum is pushing it through the threat or quarry.

    Underwood loads this ammo with clean-burning propellant. Alongside the XTP’s fully jacketed base, it ensures that fouling won’t impair operation in your Desert Eagle or other semi-automatic. The propellant is also formulated to emit as little flash as possible, so you’ll continue to be able to see your target after firing your first shot in low lighting. Nickel-plated brass cases for added corrosion resistance and smoother feeding and extraction!

    The 50 Action Express is not a pistol cartridge for weenies. Its close-range stopping power is insurmountable, which is why many folks trust it for defense against dangerous game.

    Underwood loads this ammo with 300 grain projectiles. The full metal jacket flat nose is optimal for target shooting, and will print a clean hole through a hanging paper target. But because the FMJ FN is unable to expand – and because its blunt nose profile stays forward-facing during high-velocity penetration – the bullet also excels at inflicting the deep, injurious wound channel which can topple a big beast in an instant.

    Underwood loads their premium cartridges with nickel-plated brass cases. In addition to being reloadable, they are smooth feeding, resistant to corrosion, and easier to see in the chamber in poor lighting. Underwood’s low-flash propellant suits this ammo even better for nighttime use, as it emits a duller muzzle flash which won’t leave the shooter temporarily blinded.

    Hunting with a handgun is no easy task, but Hornady can help you achieve success with this .50 AE ammunition. This ammo uses the XTP jacketed hollow point bullet, which is extremely effective at penetrating hide and bone to bring down boar and other tough animals.

    Each cartridge in this case of 200 fires a heavy 300 grain version of the XTP at a muzzle velocity of 1,475 feet per second. Expect great accuracy and terminal performance along with the usual heavy recoil for this caliber.

    Hornady ammunition is proudly made in the USA using non-corrosive primers and brass cases.
