Cowboy style action shooting can trace its lineage back to the pioneers and settlers that moved out west to conquer a new and unforeseen frontier, and is a great way to pay respect to our roots and the storied firearms that helped to settle the wild west. The Magtech .44-40 200 grain Lead Flat Nose is a hard hitting round first introduced in 1873, and has now been brought back to the forefront in ranges all across the west.
The Magtech .44-40 200gr LFN is a hard hitting rifle round originally engineered for one purpose, power. The 44 caliber lead flat nose bullet flies straight, hits hard, and can accurately engage targets out to 300 yards and beyond.
Cowboy action shooters typically prefer hard lead flat nose style bullet as they often engage steel silhouettes at distances as close 5 yards, where the malleability of the lead allows it to mushroom against the target rather than fragment as copper jacketed bullets often behave.
At a muzzle velocity in excess of 1,200 feet per second, you can rest assured that you will be able to knock over the heaviest of steel targets whether you are riding horseback, on foot, or engaged in a stress fire scenario. Cowboy action shooters who are interested in paying homage to a timeless rifle will thoroughly enjoy shooting the The Magtech .44-40 200 grain Lead Flat Nose.
