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.

These fast-expanding .44 Magnum rounds from Federal are great for hunting deer with your lever-action Marlin 1894 or trusty K-frame revolver. As part of the Fusion line, each round utilizes a 240-grain soft point bullet with a bonded copper jacket which prevents separation from causing shallow, superficial wounds. A light divot in the exposed lead tip of the round alongside precise cuts in the copper jacket promote reliable, petaled expansion which creates a larger pocket in chest cavity for faster bleeding and shocking energy transfer.
This performance is intended to bring down a deer or similarly sized game animal with humane effectiveness while preventing the bullet from continuing through the body and into the field. The lighter 240-grain bullet is loaded to fly at 1,290 feet per second at the muzzle, producing manageable recoil for the shooter. Two light cannelures at the bullet's crimp and base point on its reloadable brass casing prevent displacement which could otherwise affect accuracy or ignition. Each casing is filled with clean-burning propellant which is ignited by a non-caustic Boxer primer.
