ANTI-PERSONNEL 44 Special Ammo
200 gr. Hard Cast Wadcutter (1,000 fps)
20 Round Box 

(ITEM 14E)

This load was developed to be used in ALL/ANY 44 SPL firearms including Charter Arms. Our other heavy 44 SPL loads exclude the Charter Arms as suitable for use with them. Due to popular request to make a potent defensive load in 44 SPL that can be fired in ALL 44 SPL or 44 MAG. firearms, we’ve developed this hard cast Wadcutter 200gr. load. It utilizes a “low flash” powder as nearly all defensive shooting in the US occur in low light when the criminal element is at work and it would place the shooter in a defenseless position if he or she were blinded by the flash of their own gun fire on the first shot.

As always Buffalo Bore uses real, over-the-counter firearms to determine our published, real-world velocities.  We do this rather than following the industry-wide, duplicitous practice of using extra long test barrels to generate exaggerated velocities that the ammo user will seldom if ever see.  With Buffalo Bore you can always know what velocity your ammunition is generating in the real world, versus a sterile, ambient controlled laboratory using long, highly efficient test barrels. See our real world velocities below:

➤ 1036 fps - Ruger Super Black Hawk, 5.5-inch barrel
➤   971 fps - S&W MT Gun, 4-inch barrel
➤   948 fps - S&W Mod. 396, 3-inch barrel
➤   920 fps - Charter Arms Bull Dog, 3-inch barrel
➤   913 fps - S&W Mod. 296, 2-inch barrel

This load is designed to permanently and quickly disable human threats. The big flat wadcutter nose crushes living tissue as it passes through, unlike mushroomed bullets that are slightly rounded on the nose and tend to slip and slide through living tissue. The crushing action of the flat nose keeps penetration straight and when penetration remains straight, it is generally very deep—deep enough to obtain full penetration on the largest human from any angle. The hard cast construction will not deform on flesh and bone at these velocities so the nose profile remains constant along with bullet path and terminal damage. Noted NYPD “stake out” officer and gun fighter Jim Cirillo used full wadcutters in his 38 SPL revolvers because they incapacitated his human targets with certainty. See our Item 20D (38 SPL)

Expect about 24 inches of straight-line penetration in living mammalian tissue with this load.

This load utilizes a hard cast (not soft lead) properly lubed bullet and will not substantially lead foul your barrel, even if you fire hundreds of rounds.

I use this in my Freedom Arms 97 that has a 3.5-inch octagon barrel when sharing the trail with bikers, joggers, and walkers. Accurate round, no need to worry about bullet expansion it's a hard cast WC.

I have been carrying this ammo for years in my SW629 revolver, and never ONCE have I had the occasion of an armed conflict where I was forced to use this ammo. That means my BB .44Special AP ammo has been 100% effective. I gets no better than that.

This stuff is awesome. Will be buying more! Exceeds expectations. Out of my Charter Arms 44 with a 2.5 barrell it flies at 952 fps that equates to 402 ft/lbs. of energy! Unbelievable! A wee bit hard on reloads speedstrips or speedloaders, but if it takes more than 5 rounds, I'll pull my 38.

Low recoil very accurate in my Taurus 3 inch 441 less than 2 inches at 15 yds off hand 5 shot group.

Thanks for keeping those of us on the street well armed with the best.

This is a brilliant design, a direct copy of the .455 "Manstopper" round from the turn of the 19th into the 20th century. For a large bore revolver I do not believe there is a superior configuration available.

For the record, when with the NYPD Firearms and Tactics Unit (as a sgt and later a lt) one of my responsibilities was in Research and Testing.
