Great 44 magnum ammunition when each shot counts!
For the money, you’re getting some of the best personal defense and hunting ammunition that is available for just barely more than a premium target round. It’s quite a bargain if you look at the underlying characteristics of the cartridge and the load build. The Hornady Custom line is a very well made product with the best Hornady components and thoughtful attention to detail and engineering.
This load utilizes the XTP projectile, a proven bullet in a 200 grain configuration with a muzzle velocity of 1500 feet per second. The substantial powder charge offers this potent speed and substantial energy (993 pound feet). In hunting scenarios this is a dynamic load as it allows a full range of use that other, lesser .44 Magnum loads can’t quite get to. For home defense it may be a bit much for a rural environment but is a nice round for ranches or other large properties. The risk of overpenetration exists with the type of performance that this ammunition offers. But certainly, a case could be made that the more power the better, when it comes to stopping a potential threat. In that case, this is a strong contender all the way around, from hunting to personal protection.
