Heavy .44 Special Ammo
190 gr. Soft Cast HP (1,150fps)
20 Round Box

Item 14C


Our purpose in developing this HEAVY 44 SPL load was to duplicate our renowned 38 SPL +P 158 gr. soft cast HP @ 1000 fps out of a 2-inch revolver, (Item 20A) but with a 190gr. 44 caliber bullet.  This load was designed SPECIFICALLY for defensive use against humans. You can see our below velocities fired from my real world stock revolvers.

We use only real-world firearms in developing our published velocities and feel it is dishonest to use extra long laboratory test barrels that give false high velocities that over-the-counter carry guns cannot duplicate. You need to know what your ammo is doing in the real world, not a lab.

➤   1156 fps - Ruger Super Blackhawk, 5.5-inch barrel
➤   1098 fps - S&W MT Gun, 4-Inch barrel
➤   1046 fps - S&W mod. 696, 3-inch barrel
➤   1057 fps - S&W mod. 396, 3-inch barrel
➤   1005 fps - S&W mod. 296, 2-inch barrel

We developed this bullet to be soft (6 BHN) enough to mushroom at impact speeds around 750 fps, yet we wanted it hard enough (pure lead is 4 BHN) that it would not lead a normal revolver barrel. This bullet accomplishes both requirements. Depending on impact velocities, expect about 18 inches of penetration in living mammalian tissues, which should give ample penetration at bad angles to disable even very large men.

This bullet was also designed with a special crimp groove and the case mouth is heavily crimped and this bullet will NOT jump crimp in the lightweight alloy revolvers, provided you rotate the unfired rounds and thus do not expose unfired rounds to the recoil of more than about 10 firings.

We are using a flash suppressed powder so you won't become blinded by your own gunfire in the likely event you drop the hammer in a low-light defensive situation.

This ammunition is for use in ALL 44 SPL and 44 MAG. firearms except for the Charter Arms Bull Dog. No, this ammo won't blow up your Bull Dog, but if you shoot more than a few hundred rounds of this ammo in a Bull Dog, the gun will get looser than it already was, will go out of "time" and stop working.

Despite warning I put two shots through my Charter Bulldog, OUCH!!! The Bulldog was not damaged but I was flinching so bad missed 12" target at 15 yards on the second shot. My heavier and more stout Rossi 720 with three inch barrel handled it well but my accuracy suffered due to my flinching after shooting the Bulldog. After six rds through my 6 inch S&W m-624 the Buffalo Bore shot as tight as my mild target handloads. Fired the rest minus the 5 rds I saved for carrying in my Rossi 720. In my Rossi 44 Mag lever action rifle. The BB cycled through slicker than a hot knife through butter. Accuracy with a rifle at only 15 yards was as expected a nice cluster. Unfortunately Cabelas was out of stock and expected in 10 days. Guess the soft cast is more popular than expected. There were several boxes on the shelf when I bought the first box but sold out a week later. Next time I'll buy two. BTW, no leaded barrels

Wow!! This ammo is stout!! Absolutely punishing when fired from lightweight snubnose 44 special (18oz) I mean that as a compliment! At the range, it exploded a 3 inch hole in a paper target and blew confetti behind it!!! I have no idea how that happened but it did. This round is absolutely goolish!!!! Nice work to the Buffalo Bore crew. Definitely not the standard plinking rounds available elsewhere.

I have taken the time and cost to chronograph all of the commercial loads in my 396 NG 44 Special. With its 2.5 inch barrel the Buffalo Bore is the only ammo that performs as advertised. I shot a box of 20 and the average velocity was 1034 FPS. The rest of the manufacturers were about 200 FPS shy of what they advertise. The accuracy with the cast bullets is better than any jacketed bullet. My only problem with this ammo is availability.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
