With the popularity of Cowboy Action shooting, .44 Special ammunition has seen a renewed interest on the market and this is a great factory load for the firearm for self-defense and hunting purposes. It features a 200 grain, 7 petal, Winchester Silvertip jacketed hollow point that moves at a subsonic velocity out of the bore.
A quick note about the .44 special from a ballistic perspective: it has always been seen as anemic from the factory by the most hardcore fans of the round and has always been a hot, handloaded favorite. The fact that this comes as a subsonic round doesn’t necessarily take anything away from the potential of the round from a terminal ballistic perspective. The chance for over penetration is lowered overall, and the proven Silvertip projectile is known to be a consummate performer in the defensive arena. This round is a dedicated defensive round that you can rest assured, will perform, for those who want to carry the .44 Special firearms for personal protection.
As an added bonus to the already very consistent and proven Silvertip loadout that is highlighted here: the reloaders of this round can expect premium brass with which to make those hot handloads that the .44 Special is so famous for. The Boxer primed virgin brass makes this a value added purchase for true connoisseurs of the caliber.
