As new from the CZ Custom shop, a .500 Jeffery built on the magnum action 550, it features a square bridge receiver with integral scope mounting, single set trigger and safari style rigid iron sights. A medium weight barrel brings the unloaded weight to 9 3/4 lbs with mercury tube weight in buttstock. This is not the standard production rifle as cataloged, these are only from the custom shop.
The stock is cut in the classic safari style with rounded short forearm and wide butt to disperse recoil and has dual cross bolts and glass bedding for added strength. This is their fancy grade American walnut. Comes with two boxes of ammo as shown!
"Like the .505 Gibbs, the .500 Jeffery is enjoying somewhat of a renaissance among American shooters and African Big Game hunters in the early 21st century, almost 100 years after their introduction. As of 2009, Norma, Kynoch, Mauser, Corbon, and Westley Richards are offering loaded ammunition in .500 Jeffery. There may be other manufacturers as well."When the 500 Jeffery was first introduced it was loaded to a velocity of 2,350 feet per second (720 m/s) topped off with a 535 grain bullet generating 6,560 ft⋅lbf (8,890 J) of muzzle energy, which makes it a pretty good hunting caliber generally where thick skinned dangerous game occurs. Since then reloading capabilities have advanced being able to launch heavier bullets at higher velocities. Now with modern reloads the 500 Jeffery can launch a 600 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity ranging at about 2,450 to 2,500 ft/s . max. generating 7,995 ft⋅lbf to 8,100 ft⋅lbf
