The .44 Magnum is most famously known for its front-and-center role with Clint Eastwood in the movie “Dirty Harry.” After all, who doesn’t know at least some version of the famous “do you feel lucky” speech? But it’s more than just the gun used in a popular-yet-dated movie; the .44 Magnum is an enormously powerful handgun capable of such fantastic energy it can easily over-penetrate a target. Not only that, it’s one of the rare handgun calibers that can also be used for hunting; if you want to carry a truly capable sidearm as backup on a hunt, the .44 Magnum delivers.
At 180 grain these are lightweight rounds for the cartridge size. At this weight they’re going to soar down-range at impressive speeds while retaining enough weight to pack a nice punch on impact. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing the bullets to penetrate more deeply than standard HPs, creating a larger, more catastrophic wound cavity. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 1750 and muzzle energy of 1225 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for self-defense.
There are 50 defense rounds in this box of ammunition. That’s just enough ammunition to keep your gun and extra speed loaders ready for personal protection purposes with a few left over to fire for practice. Of course, firing a few isn’t many, and it’s a good idea to get more extensive practice in to ensure accuracy with these powerful rounds, do you might want to consider ordering multiple boxes. This ammunition is manufactured by PMC at their factories in Angang and Dongrae, South Korea, according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. If you intend to use your .44 Magnum for self-defense, keep it loaded with expanding rounds. Place your order now and be ready to defend yourself.
