BUFFALO BORE 445 SUPER MAGNUM
ITEM 445 SM 240
For over 20 years, I’ve been getting requests for some 445 Super Mag. loads. As of this writing (05-05-21) Due to demand, I’ve been wanting to make these 445 loads for at least 15 years, but something always got in my way. Two years ago, I bought a supply of brass thinking I would get it done soon, but then the politicized Covid farce hit, and we’ve been far too busy to bring out new loads, till now.
This is our first release of what will eventually be three or four 445 SM loads. Item # 445SM 240, features a 240 gr. JHP at 1,700 FPS from my lone Dan Wesson 445 revolver with an 8-inch barrel below. I’m getting roughly a 150-200 fps gain over our famed 44 Rem. Mag. loads with these 445 loads, in a revolver that is more svelte (and lighter) than the X frame S&W revolvers.
We are using a flash suppressed powder in these loads, but with any powder charge this large, being fired from an 8-inch revolver, there is still some decent flash.
My particular DW revolver had some tooling marks in the chambers that could be seen with the naked eye, easily. These new loads showed slightly sticky extraction until I buffed out the chambers…….after that, the fired empties fall out very easily. Please read this article……………. STICKY EXTRACTION OF FIRED CASINGS
Item # 445 SM 180 features a 180 gr. JHP @ 1,850 fps from my test revolver and is designed for killing animals up to 300 lbs.
Item # 445 SM 240 features a 240 gr. JHP @ 1,700 fps, and is designed for hunting animals up to the 400-500 lb. range.
Item # 445 SM 300 features a 300 gr. JFN bullet @ 1,450 fps, and should not be used on animals heavier than 1,000 lbs.
We will make a heavy, non-expanding hard cast load too, that can be used on critters weighing up to 2,000 lbs., if there is sufficient interest.
Now there is a source to the general public for excellent 445 Super Mag ammunition and we are happy to bring that to you.
Good shooting and God bless,

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20
IF YOU DO NOT READ THIS, IT IS ON YOU!
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.
Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.
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!
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.
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,
