44 Special Ammo
The .44 Special is a great all-around cartridge used for target shooting as well as hunting. It can be fired from both dedicated .44 Special revolvers and .44 Magnum firearms as a lower-recoil, lower-cost alternative.
Most .44 Special ammunition fires a heavy 200-250 grain bullet at a relatively low muzzle velocity in the 700-900 feet per second range.
Although it was introduced in 1907, this caliber lends itself well to cowboy action shooting and delivers great ballistic, if not historical, accuracy.

PMC is one of the best, if not the best, ammunition manufacturers in Asia. Making inexpensive but high quality ammunition and supplying the South Korean military with tons of ammunition of all sizes, you can't go wrong with PMC.
The 44 Special was developed in 1907 for Smith and Wesson's 1908, New Century Revolver. This round was created specifically to celebrate the turn of the century with a round that had been very influential on the western frontier. When you pick up this box of 44 Special, 180 grain, jacketed hollow point ammo, you are protecting yourself with a very similar round to what the cowboys thought of as one of the very best rounds to protect themselves with.
.44’s functioned as expected, and at a good price
I went to three different stores to find ammo. Found it, but expensive. Found it at Widener’s, and got all I wanted at a fair price.
