A big cartridge with big projectile weight retention and big impact for clean kills and heavy game.
The Barnes Expander is an all-copper round that is suitable in most jurisdictions for game hunting and offers significant performance benefits with the 100% weight retention, hard hitting penetration and exceptional ballistic numbers, not to mention on-target terminal ballistics. With the large projectile in the 454 Casull (this load is a 250 grain projectile), the capability for stopping game in their tracks is significant. The load is marketed specifically as a medium game load. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t have advanced capabilities beyond that, but it does show that it is a sweet spot for the load.
Perfect for deer, antelope and the like, this round is a potent handgun round for hunting and has been for decades. Decades past, they didn’t have the Barnes Expander bullet however and they didn’t have the premium components that are available in this loadout. As a result, you are getting all of the capability of the 454 Casull, which is immense; and you are getting the finest engineering in the business when it comes to improvements to the round for modern day hunting needs.
