This new load is designed ONLY for certain firearms. They are as follows; Ruger Red Hawk, Ruger Super Red Hawk (the Ruger Alaskan is a short barrel Super Redhawk), Ruger Super Blackhawk or Vaquero, Freedom Arms Model 83, Taurus Raging Bull All Steel Versions (no lightweight alloys), Colt Anaconda, Magnum Research BFR and Dan Wesson Revolvers. Suitable rifles include T/C Encore, CVA Hunter, Handi Rifle and any rifle with a falling block action. Please note that this website list of approved firearms is more up to date than some of the lists found on our boxes of ammo.
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 use this product irresponsibly, we may have to discontinue it, and that would be unfortunate as it is our best selling 44 mag. Load, and it gives excellent 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.
This load brings a level of power to the 44 Mag. that has never before been known.
The below velocities with over the counter firearms tell the story.
➤ 1,401 fps -- 5.5-inch factory stock Red Hawk
➤ 1,478 fps -- 7.5-inch factory stock Red Hawk

I AM IMPRESSED with this load's unmatched power and incredible accuracy! I purchased 2 boxes of this 340 gr. LHC P load this week, to try in my single shot CVA Hunter in .44 Mag, with its 22" bbl. and 1 in 20" twist rifling. I bought it primarily as a 'camp gun' and wanted the heaviest practical, and most accurate, dedicated 'bear load' for family-protection (along with our bear spray) should a threatening grizzly show up at our camp.
While the recoil must be a "bear" in even heavy revolvers, it's really negligible (almost a 'pussy-cat' in comparison to ANY handguns) in my small 6.5 lb. scoped-CVA rifle. This rifle's rifling also truly likes this Buffalo Bore<br 'heavy-bullet' load as my 5 shot group at 50 yds. (from a bench-rest) shot into 5/8"!!
At 100 yds. my 5 shots went into an honest 1.5", just 3" above my point-of-aim and only 1" above this little rifle's current-zero with Buffalo Bore's 240 gr LHPGC. P "Deer Grenade" load. This latter load will also place 5 shots into a 1 - 1.5" group at 100 yds., all day long, if I do my part!
So, I fully endorse both of these Buffalo Bore loads (especially the heavy HC 340 gr. bullet load for bears) and I also suggest to anyone looking for a great little carbine in the .44 Mag. which might be used for bears (and who are 'recoil-shy' when it comes to heavy-caliber bear-loads in revolvers!), to seriously consider this Buffalo Bore load & CVA 'Hunter' rifle combo'!
If you want to get max energy out of your .44 this is the one. I have reloaded some heavy rounds, but they seem tame to these. At the range you will get people's attention.
First encountered this from a friend who brought some to the range. I usually shoot 240gr jhps in my Ruger SBH. I loaded a cylinder with these, noted they almost come to the end of the chamber in the cylinder. Being used to the 240gr 44mag, I had no idea what to expect. There was a lotta recoil compared to .44mag 240 gr, no holding this one down! Glad my 7.5 SBH weighs 3lbs. Would not want to shoot this out of a lighter 44. Accurate and powerful, would carry in bear country.
Like shooting a cannon in your hands. This is a load for people that want the ballistics of a .454 casull without having to actually buy the weapon itself. I had a super redhawk, and recoil was "stout" with these loads. If you want to hunt with this ammo, you are going to need to put some time in at the range if you aren't used to this level of recoil. I should mention I got a lot of "WTF was that" faces at the range when I shot these too. Always entertaining!
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 offside. 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.

I have come to an honest conclusion about these heavy p .44 mag. loads.
They are superior to standard factory .454 Casull loads!!
I fire them in my Ruger super Redhawk Alaskan 2.5 inch.
Buffalo Bore .454 casull are obviously superior, but where can you buy the most powerful .44 magnum round anywhere else in the world? you can't! Only Buffalo Bore sells the most powerful .44 mag.round in the world!
I am beyond impressed.
Fired my first rounds from a ruger redhawk 5.5 from 30 yards in a kneeling position.
Heavy recoil, but very manageable.
bulls eye on target, i am impressed.
this will be a great deer round, and possibly moose at close range.
highly recommended to all handgun hunters!!
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.

Incredible round for the .44 magnum!! I have a ruger super blackhawk 4 5/8 barrel and found this round to be very accurate and had no problems with extraction. The recoil is stout, but manageable ( even had my 120lb girlfriend shoot it with no problem) If you are looking for a reliable round with plenty of power look no further!!
Zips through a 15 inch diameter live poplar with energy to spare.
I shoot these from my 9.5" Ruger Super Redhawk. Yet to kill a critter with it, but am headed to Maine for a Black Bear hunt, and will give the review then. All I can say now is that these come out fast, and print nice groups iron sights, at 25 yards.
I've been shooting this ammo in my S
Have used extensively in Ruger super red hawk. Only using on big whitetails in Iowa, but puts them down fast. Dont need this much power for deer but allows me to get extended range. Had a wounded deer from another hunter running at 150 plus yards, fired the shot quartering away, got lucky shot and put deer down instantly, awsome round, you wont be disapointed.
