“'Did he fire six shots or only five'?” This is probably the most iconic firearm scene in the entire history of Hollywood. Every one of you just read that in Clint Eastwood’s raspy voice; don’t deny it. He is, of course, carrying a S&W M29 chambered in the mighty .44 Magnum.

The .44 Magnum is a very powerful cartridge for a handgun, although it has been dethroned by a number of very hot calibers released in recent years. Nevertheless, it remains a very popular caliber, and not just in wheelguns. The .44 Magnum has been a popular carbine caliber for a long time, both in lever guns as well as a few semi-autos and even bolt guns by the always innovative Ruger.

Ever-innovative Hornady found a hole in the market of ammo for lever guns. Since lever guns have a tubular magazine, there is an inherent risk of have pointed tip bullets lined up in it. Think about a .223 FMJ butted up to the primer of the round in front of it; if the rifle is dropped, that bullet will act as a firing pin and ignite the round in front. THis is why flat-nosed bullets have always been used in lever guns.

But flat nosed bullets significantly limit the efficiency of the of the bullet. Think of an old cabover semi tractor versus a modern, sleek design. Hornady set out to use polymers in the LEVERevolution bullets to provide the efficiency of a FMJ bullet, while retaining the expansion qualities of a hollow point AND the safety of a flat nosed bullet. The polymer has enough give and flex that it will not ignite a primer.

If your brush gun, truck gun, or ranch rifle of choice is a lever rifle in .44 Magnum, give Honday’s LEVERevolution 225 grain FTX a try. You will experience better performance than ever before out of your trusty carbine.

A: Thanks for reaching out Mike! The Bond Arms Grizzly is chambered for 45 Long Colt (aka 45 Colt) cartridges and 410 Bore shotshells. Even if 44 Mag could fit in your derringer's chambers, it would destroy the handgun (and possibly part of your hand) on ignition. I'm afraid we haven't got any 410 Bore ammo in stock at present, although we do update our inventory constantly. We have got plenty of options for you in 45 Long Colt, however. You can see what we've got right here: bulkammo.com/handgun/bulk-.45-long-colt-ammo

A: The FTX bullet would allow you to make accurate shots at longer range than with other ammo through the same firearm. If this is not something that you would find useful, normal .44 Mag ammo might be a better choice.
