Heavy .44 Magnum +P+ Ammo - 340 gr. L.F.N. - G.C. (1,478 fps/M.E. 1,649 ft. lbs.) - 20 Round Box
NEW HEAVY 44 MAGNUM +P+
This new load is designed ONLY for certain firearms. They are as follows; Ruger Red Hawk, Ruger Super Red Hawk, Ruger Super Blackhawk or Vaquero, Freedom Arms Model 83, Taurus Raging Bull, Colt Anaconda, Magnum Research BFR and Dan Wesson Revolvers. Suitable rifles include T/C Encore, "modified" Marlin 1894 (see next paragraph), Winchester 1894, any rifle with a falling block action and the Handi Rifle. We get hundreds of emails asking if this load can be fired in S&W revolvers or some firearm other than what is in the above list. The answer is NO. The above list is all inclusive. If some shooters continue to irresponsibly use this product, we may have to discontinue it and that would be unfortunate as it is our best selling 44 mag. load and it gives great performance for those that use it responsibly however, as is always the case, irresponsible use of any product ends up penalizing responsible users. It would also be wise to read our “Technical Article” on “Dangerous Pure Lead Cowboy Bullets”, before using this (ITEM 4D) product.
What do we mean above by "modified" Marlin?" Marlin (for an unknown, not well thought out reason) is using a very slow rate of twist (1/38 inches) on their 1894 chambered in 44 mag. Because of this slow rate of twist, the heaviest bullet that the factory Marlin will stabilize is about 270grs. Other firearm makers that chamber for the 44 mag all use a much faster rate of twist so that their guns will stabilize and therefore accurately shoot bullets over 300grs. Many folks today want their 44 magnums to be able to utilize the heavy 300gr. and heavier bullets - Marlin has not figured this out. If you want decent accuracy out of our new +p+ load in a Marlin, it will need to be re-barreled with a twist rate of roughly 1/20 inch. I have Dave Clay re-barrel all my Marlin 1894's with a faster twist barrel. A 44 magnum that wont accurately shoot 300gr. or heavier bullets is useless to me. Call him at 817-783-6099 for pricing.
This load brings a level of power to the 44 mag. that has never before been known.

Last week's hunt was at Dismal River Ranch near Mullen, Nebraska with my good friend John Howell. John has tremendous trophy bull bison and great accommodations and John backs up all his hunters with your 45/70 ammo. From 15 to 25 hunters a year.
My first shot at 65 yards entered the left side of the bull just behind the elbow on the front leg and penetrated both lungs, it was over the heart by about an inch. That bullet was recovered under the hide on the bull's off side. Photos are attached.
The next shot was high in the back on the left side towards the off side shoulder. We could not find that bullet. He turned giving me a shot to the neck that passed completely thru him and that bullet was not recovered. I normally will not shoot an animal that is lying down, but I had a good rest and my Ruger Blackhawk Hunter 44 Magnum wears a Leupold pistol scope, so I was confident in my aim. From the first shot to the last, John said it was about 6 seconds total, the bull traveled about 8 to 10 yards. This is my third bison bull and the others were shot with a 444 Marlin. They traveled much farther before going down than this bull.
I will use the Ruger with your 44 Magnum 340 grain LBT-LFNGC +P+ load for all my bison hunts in the future. John says he will borrow it too. I am impressed with this load in many ways. Terminal performance was amazing and the accuracy speaks for its self as the 65 yard range is not a guess, but ranged with both my guide's and my rangefinders. Hope you enjoy the photos of the bull and the bullet.
Here are pictures of the 2 cow elk I took with your rounds. Feel free to use this info. I shot these 2 cow elk in 2 seasons with my Dan Wesson 44 magnum, open sites, 10 inch barrel,revolver. One elk was taken thru both lungs at 50 yards, she was 450 lbs. The second elk was also shot thru both lungs and a follow up shot that wasn't necessary. She was 600 lbs. The elk were just as well hit as with my 300 win. mag. This shows the power of the buffalo bore 340 grain + P+ 44 mag. I will continue to use this round as it has proven itself.
