The .475 and .500 Linebaugh are among the most powerful hunting revolver calibers available today. Several custom gun makers chamber special revolvers for this proprietary cartridge. The .500 Linebaugh uses a .510" diameter projectile. Both cases are currently available directly from Starline.
* Starline Brass does not sell any loaded ammunition. What you are purchasing are brass cases only and will need to be loaded into ammunition in order to be fired from a firearm.
I've been using Starline cases for many calibers for quite some time and am never disappointed in the quality. This has held true for the 500 Linebaugh. I load this cartridge with 440 gr. or 500 gr. gas-checked bullets at a low end velocity of 960 fps to 1,150 fps on the high side. I have reloaded cases up to 5 times and haven't thrown one out yet. Primer pockets and flash holes also display good uniformity. I like that they're made in America too!

Best brass money can buy. Great that Starline supports so many niche calibers like the mighty 500 Linebaugh. Thanks Starline
