The .500 Smith and Wesson Magnum was developed in 2003 for the S&W X-Frame Revolver during a combined effort between Smith and Wesson and Cor-Bon. Cor-bon designed the round to be the most powerful production handgun round in existence. Along with Cor-bon working on the round, the S&W team designed and built the massive X-Frame revolver to house and fire the massive .500 S&W Magnum load. Since then, the popularity of the .500 S&W Magnum has continued to grow and remains one of the largest production handgun rounds on the market.
