This is a CZ 550 converted to 500 A-Square from 416 Rigby. It has also been long throated to allow the use of 50 bmg projectiles, basically like the 50 peacemaker.
The rifle has approximately a 22" barrel (I would have to go back and measure to be sure).

It comes with:
New CZ 550 stock
CH4D Reloading Dies
T4 Terminator Muzzle Break (Note the one pictured is the LAW muzzle break, not the T4)
290 - 570 gr. Barnes solids
41 - Hornady Dangerous Game Solids
18 - Hornady A-Max
15 - 870 gr. Spotter (50 bmg projectile)
18 - Incendiary (50 bmg projectile)
124 - Armor Piercing (50 bmg projectile)
282 - Armor Piercing Incendiary (50 bmg projectile)
127 - Empty Cases (mainly 416 and 460 Weatherby)
Loaded Ammunition

This rifle still needs some iron sights, some kind of finish, possibly the polishing and/or turning down of barrel, and the fitting of metal to wood of the new stock after finishing it.

I'm looking to get $6,000 for this rifle and I'm willing to listen to reasonable offers.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask me and I will do my best to answer.

I wonder how bad the muzzle blast would be.
With an already abbreviated .500 caliber barrel and muzzle break...
It's bound to be impressive.

Good luck with the sale.

It is very impressive and makes the rifle feel like a mild 45-70. It's not too bad shooting without it either.

Like I said, I'm open to any reasonable offer and if you would like to make an offer I would be honored to talk about it.

$6000 I think you are being optimistic....
You have a way of stating some things that I truly admire.
Yes, "optimistic" is the proper word.

Man dig the "brake"!:eek::eek: If the bullet doesn't kill it and the muzzle blast doesn't blow him off his feet, you can always use it like a mace and beat it to death with it.:rolleyes:

It's not too bad and thank you for catching that grammatical error, its a bit embarrassing. Also, I believe you could use it in all those situations! If you can't kill it with the bullet, beat it with the gun until the job is done!

I think this rifle would be a blast (sorry) for shooting the Mk 211 BMG round (Raufoss) in a platform more suitable to many than the 50 BMG rifles. And it would actually fit in the gun safe. Looks fun...........................FWB

The rifle is still available and I appreciate all the comments. It's a great gun and with a hefty charge of RL-17, it will do what you ask of it!

I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Tam Dl wrote on xausa's profile.
Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.
