.50 Beowulf
 
 

This cartridge is nearly a straight case with a .500 diameter, that gages out on the mouth as does the 9MM, & 45 ACP, etc.. The rebated rim is cut down to .444 diameter used by the 7.62 X 39 to allow the use of the standard AR15 bolt. Its size and length allows the use of the AR15 magazines as single stack.
