Created by Bill Alexander, and solely proprietary to Alexander Arms, the .50 Beowulf was designed to be used in a modified AR-15 rifle. Featuring a rebated rim, the .50 Beowulf is sized to match the rim of the 7.62x39mm and 6.5mm Grendel rounds. Though it is similar to the dimensions of the .500 S&W Magnum revolver rounds, the .50 Beowulf is longer by a small margin and tapered fully to allow it to be fed into an automatic rifle.

The .50 Beowulf can trace its lineage to the .50 Action Express, starting with the L.A.R. Grizzly and in modern times, the Desert Eagle pistol, with significant modification to improve functionality and safety in the AR-15 rifle. It was intended to improve the stopping power at short and medium range, with regards to being compared with the 5.56x45mm NATO round. One of the key points Alexander Arms uses in advertising is the round’s ability to penetrate through glass and other vehicle parts without being deflected from it’s intended trajectory. The .50 Beowulf is best described as a low-velocity, heavy caliber, making its ballistics roughly equivalent to those of early .45-70 Government rounds rather than the higher-pressure rounds tolerated by modern lever-action rifles such as the Marlin Model 1895. Adaptability is limited due to its use of the 7.62×39mm bolt face. Although much has been written about its tactical uses, the .50 Beowulf is gaining recognition as a sporting cartridge. It is becoming more widely recognized as being usable for a wide variety of North American game, including deer, moose, and black bear.

Each box contains 50 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
