Well, actually, I'd start with jacketed bullets, until you learn how to reload.
The .500 brings with it certain traits that are a little different then normal calibers.
Thicker case necks & lead bullets will require more experiance and knowledge of belling and crimping then most other calibers for one thing.
Jacketed would probably be the easier path to learn reloading with.

I am not new to reloading, only to the .500. Thank you for the link!

I buy my hard cast lead gas check bullets from Montana Bullet Works. They don't lead at all even at 2100+fps out of my 500 Handi-Rifle.
Look on gunbroker for once-fired brass and any other 500 reloading supplies.
