It's been almost 2 years since the initial flurry of requests from the members here for Underwood to manufacture 480 Ruger ammo.

Here is the original post- Underwood Request

I was on their website yesterday, filling my cart, and just happened to notice that they now have loads for both 480 Ruger and 475 Linebaugh. Unfortunately, at this time the only load for each, uses their Xtreme Penetrator round. Looking forward to seeing some heavy hard cast stuff.

Underwood 480 Ruger

Please contact Underwood and let them know that we appreciate them adding the 480 Ruger, and that we would like to see some more offerings.

Thanks for your help in keeping this great round alive.

Not trying to change your mind on what you want, but the Extreme Penetrator Bullet does everything that a cast could do, but won't smear or shatter like a cast can, and gives excellent straight line penetration

I saw a 9mm Xtreme penetrator perform almost identical to a 9mm fmj in ballistics gel. Definitely not a conclusive test for all Xtreme penetrators, but I would really like to see what they can do on real game animals.

I've watched some of the YouTube videos of the Extreme Penetrator Bullet in the 500 S&W. They were impressive, but it was a 500 too. I used the 350 gr Extreme Penetrator Bullet out of my SSK Encore Barrel in 500 S&W loaded from Underwood on a big boar that I shot. Tissue damage seemed very similar to a HC to me..Caliber size, but really nothing to get excited about

We used them this last year on whitetails out of a 357 and they did well. Good x cut and quick bleed out. Obviously would need more use on bigger animals but im not sure where they fit in yet.

James,

Tradmark is refering to the X shape that the bullet cuts through the target.

Here is a video that shows the X shape in ballistic gel; watch at 2:23 in the video.

Thank you for your heads up video because the way it reads I thought for a second there was an actual X cut into the meat which we both know cannot happen because of the rotational spin of the bullet...silly me

It actually looks like an x at any given slice thru the vital tissue. Pretty interesting
