PolyCase Ammunition and Alexander Arms Team Up on .50 Beowulf ARX®
SAVANNAH, Ga. — (ArmsVault.com) – PolyCase Ammunition, LLC, and Alexander Arms announced this week that they have teamed up to offer PolyCase’s ARX® projectile in a .50 Beowulf variant. The .50 Beowulf, developed and produced by Alexander Arms, for the AR-15 platform, is designed to deliver exceptional stopping power at short to moderate range. PolyCase’s ARX® projectile is an advanced, injection-molded copper polymer bullet which transfers maximum energy to targets without expanding like a hollow-point.
“We are thrilled to be working with Alexander Arms to offer the ARX® projectile in the .50 Beowulf caliber,” says Paul Lemke, founder and CEO of PolyCase Ammunition. “This caliber is the ultimate big-bore semi-auto rifle cartridge. When you combine the massive energy of the .50 Beowulf with the patent-pending stopping power of the ARX®, you have a defensive and hunting rifle cartridge that is second to none.”
Alexander Arms released the .50 Beowulf in 2003 and it now dominates the big-bore AR-15 market. Since its inception, the .50 Beowulf continues to gain adherents in the civilian market as a self-defense and big-game hunting cartridge. In addition it is recognized in law-enforcement as an effective barrier breaching and vehicle interdiction round. The introduction of the PolyCase’s ARX® projectile, represents another milestone in the development of the .50 Beowulf cartridge.
Says Bill Alexander, founder of Alexander Arms, “This projectile [the ARX®] is going to push the limits of what the .50 Beowulf can do. In our testing we found that the ARX® transfers a maximum amount of energy with minimal over-penetration, resulting in one of the most effective defensive and short- to medium-range hunting cartridges on the market”.
