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.
Magtech 44 Special 240 Grain LFN - 50 Rounds$32.85
Manufacturer Magtech Condition New Bullet Weight 240 Grain Bullet Type Lead Flat Nose Use Type match or precision shooting Casing Type Brass Quantity 50 Ammo Caliber 44 S&W Special Manufacturer SKU 44B Primer Type Boxer Magnetic No UPC Barcode 754908168118 Cost Per Round 65.7¢ per round
This Cowboy Action .44 Special ammunition from Magtech is a great choice for action or general target shooting and uses a light-kicking load suitable for rapid, accurate fire. It can be used in both revolvers and lever action rifles.
Each round in this box of 50 propels a heavy 240-grain lead flat nose (LFN) bullet to a modest muzzle velocity of 761 feet per second. This results in good close-range performance with controllable felt recoil. The flat nosed bullet is safe for shooting steel targets and punches nice, clean holes in paper ones. Indoor shooters should be aware that not all ranges allow the use of unjacketed ammunition; outdoor shooters should have no problems!
Magtech ammo is loaded in Brazil by CBC, one of the largest ammunition manufacturers in Latin America. CBC, which also owns and operates the MEN and Sellier & Bellot brands, produces their own non-corrosive Boxer primers and brass cases to ensure superior quality control.
They are ok
I purchased the .44 special rds for some more pleasurable paper shooting . They worked fine . But after 180 grn remington full house mags you wondered if they went off . If want light plinking loads , 2 thumbs up.
