"Very pleased with this product. A great round for the money and nice brass. I bought 4 boxes originally, and had a very enjoyable session. I came back the very next day to buy 10 more boxes, but CTD was out-of-stock.I pinged BVAC and told them to hurry up and get more product to CTD:-)I check twice weekly and will continue to buy as available."

"I own a Taurus Raging Bull 500. I went to the range and fire 40 rounds of this ammo through my hand canon and I love the accuracy and power. At 25 yards, I put all of them inside a 3 inch circle. For the price, you can't go wrong. I am going to buy more as soon as it comes in."

"A few month back I picked up a few boxes of ther BVAC 350gr .500 ammunition from CTD. I was impressed with the quality and the great price from Cheaper Than Dirt. I have 2 Smith & Wesson .500's a 4\" and a 6.5\". The ammo was clean and quite accurate. After a couple rear sight adjustments it was hitting in a 3\" to 4\" circle at 75 feet, and taking out 1 gallon water jugs at well over 100 feet from a table rest. The recoil is managable but really firm, and it burns really clean. For the price and the fast shipping from Cheaper Than Dirt you can't go wrong. The wait for them to come back in stock is worth it, and when they do I will be back for more, hope it is soon. Thanks to BVAC and CTD for a great product!"

"Bought 20 Boxes, Great stuff. You cannot beat the price. Get it while it lasts. Goes out of stock all the time and Im sure it will go up. You will not find a cheaper price on the web. (I looked.)Shoots perfect, I have shot about 100 rds so far and have had no problems."

"I bought the .500 S&W rifle and was looking for a good brand of cheaper shells. I got 2 boxes to try out. I already had bought 2 boxes of Magtech 325gr and was shooting the Magtechs open sights at 200yds. These did exactly the same but cost half as much. I used them deer hunting this year and was impressed. I shot 4 deer and they went straight down. I will stay with them for sure and would recommend them any day. Thanks CTD for them (only problem is supply)"

"This is a great ammo at an unbelievable price. I expected it to be a \"you get what you pay for\" type of deal, with unclean brass, underpowered, iffy bullets, etc. Boy was I wrong. The rounds are clean brass with copper plated hollow points, conveniently packed into boxes of 5 rounds for the standard 5-shot X-Frame (the outer box contains 4 smaller internal boxes for the total of 20 rounds). When shot out of the 10.5\" SW 500, they clocked at 1795 fps, even though they are rated at 1700 fps. This is a longer-than-standard barrel so it contributed to the higher velocity, but the fact remains that this is an honest, full power load. If the bullet performs the way I believe it does, this ammo is a steal."

"BVAC at $1.30 a shot is more accurate than the ammo I received from S. G. at $1.89 a shot, as well as being a tad more powerful and it is cleaner."

"I own a Raging bull with a 10.5 in barrel, and the BVAC shot out of this beast was awesome! I hope they continue to make this round because they have this one figured out. 14 out of 15 rds. landed perfectly in a 4in kill zone from 60 yards with open sites. I hope CTD keeps alot of this in stock because I will be buying more."

"I read the reviews and risked buying 10 boxes for a first order. This ammo lived up to the reviews. It is very good ammo. I have had good results at 100 yards with my S&W 500 pistol ! I ordered 20 more boxes-they are currently enroute.YAHOO!!"

"Powerful and pretty accurate. The deer is not going to care how much you paid for the bullet that ends it's life."

"Cheapest stuff I can find for the S&W 500, but it's by no means a cream puff round!It's fun to shoot up concrete blocks with this stuff. I'm going to order some every time CTD has it in stock!"

"As many may know, I review ammo from CTD very often, as well as other stores. I have shot many different types of ammo and the .500 is no stranger now. I bought two boxes of this ammo and was landing well within established standards at 100 yards from my S&W 500. I still need to do a little more sighting in on the revolver, but it moved exactly the amount I adjusted each time. Great ammo, BVAC. You may have a returning customer!"

"I measured the energy at 1,800 ft-lbs. Less than advertised, but quite honestly, it still made my hand and forearm hurt, despite being a power lifter. This ammo is as hot as you could possibly want it.You will only shoot 5 shots per week.Shot #1 - WoWShot #2 - OuchShot #3 - This is starting to really hurtShot #4 - I hope that was the last oneShot #5 - I'm not shooting this again any time soon.No point in buying more expensive ammo."

"I just fired the first 10 rounds of the stuff. Out of those 10, I already had one FTF (and my gun has only had about 50 rds through it, so I know it isn't the gun). I didn't mind because I was target shooting, but I purchased 60 rounds and plan to hunt with it. I really hope it was just an isolated mishap. If I had been sighted on a huge buck, I would have been extremely upset. Gives me less confidence in carrying this ammo for protection/hunting. Disappointment."
