44 Magnum Ammo

Introduced in 1955, .44 Magnum ammo surely owes some of its popularity to the S&W Model 29 prominently used by Clint Eastwood's "Dirty Harry" character in the 1970s and 1980s. The film's depiction of the .44 mag as a powerful, high-recoiling gun with a low capacity but a fearsome punch was quite realistic by the standards of the time.

Today, however, .44 Magnum ammunition tends to find itself fired into hogs and deer rather than maniac serial killers. Shooters typically don't have the same concerns about recoil or capacity in their hunting weapons that they do for self-defense. This gives the .44's massive stopping power a chance to really shine.

.44 Magnum ammo typically fires a heavy bullet in the 300 grain range to provide better penetration against tough hide and bone. You can find cartridges for sale from the most trusted brands in the biz here at Widener's - from Federal to Magtech, PMC and Winchester.
