The 500 Nitro Express was introduced in 1890 and was filled with Cordite Smokeless
Powder and was derived from the 500 Express BPE "Straight".
BPE  means  Black Powder Express.
*Cordite was invented in 1889 and was used in Military Cartridges and then British Sporting
Cartridges starting in 1890. Cordite looks like thin red spaghetti and was later replaced in
early 1900's by modern day smokeless gunpowder.
