Hornady Custom is a line of manufactured ammunition by Hornady that essentially tries to white glove the production process for individual rounds, making the ordinary machine process into a hybridized semi manual operation. This load is an above average .44 Magnum load but still isn’t at the top tier in ballistic numbers at the bench due to some awkward component selection and slightly less than hot ballistic numbers. All in though, the .44 Remington Magnum from the Hornady Custom range offers a good experience and high reliability.
1350 feet per second velocity and 971 ft. lbs. of energy delivered at the bore make these surprisingly efficient for home defense when compared to hotter rounds. The risk for overpenetration is significantly reduced and the 240 grain projectile (XTP) is a potent JHP to send towards a threat.
The Hornady Custom load in this case seems well suited to the specific personal defense use case, where in a different fashion, other Hornady Custom loads have vastly different goals. Don’t let the same packaging fool you into believing that they must adhere to a set principle for their loading. The best part about this Hornady Custom cartridge? The relatively low price for the relatively high potential for a personal defense ammunition.
