The .44 Magnum Ammo is a rimmed, long bore bullet designed in 1954 initially used by revolvers but was quickly adopted for rifles and carbines. The design of the .44 Magnum Ammo is based on the .44 Special Ammo, but the lengthened case of the .44 Magnum Ammo allows it to load more pressure and achieve more incredible velocity and energy levels. At one point, the .44 Magnum Ammo was called the most powerful handgun ammo but was later dethroned by a few others. However, because of its manageable recoil, the .44 Magnum Ammo still remains one of the most popular large-bore magnum bullets. The .44 Magnum Ammo is unsuitable to be used by police or people with small builds. The overall length and diameter of the .44 Magnum Ammo are 41mm and 10.9m, respectively. The 340-grain variant of this cartridge travels at the velocity of 1,425 feet per second and produces an energy level of 1,533 ft.lbf.
The .44 Magnum Ammo was designed and manufactured by Elmer Keith and Smith & Wesson in 1954. Because the bullet remains popular today, it is still manufactured.
When it comes to hunting, the .44 Magnum Ammo is a favorite for taking out the medium, and big game, up to the size of an elk in the range of 100 to 150 yards. However, thanks to the precise shot placement and deep level penetration this bullet provides, the big Cape Buffalo has been taken out.
The .44 Auto Mag Ammo is a large caliber used in a semi-automatic pistol and was designed in 1971. Its straight wall, rimless case was initially created by trimming the .308 Winchester Ammo case to 1.30 inches. However, the cartridges needed to be custom-made, which was the core reason for its downfall. The auto mag pistols were known to be the most powerful handgun production back in the day. The .44 Auto Mag Ammo was designed with the prime intention of bringing .44 Magnum Ammo power to a semi-auto pistol. The .44 Auto Mag Ammo was created to shoot a .429-inch, 240-grain bullets at almost the same velocity as the .44 Magnum Ammo. The main reason for the downfall of the demand for the .44 Auto Mag Ammo was because bad company decisions led to a massive loss on the sales of each gun that used these cartridges. However, today, an Auto Mag Pistol has a lot of demand, mostly made to order.
The .44 Auto Mag Ammo was designed between 1966 to 1971 by Harry Sanford & Max Gera and was manufactured from 1971 to 1982 and then 2017 to the present by Auto Mag Corporation.
The intense power and pinpoint accuracy of the .44 Auto Mag Ammo make it suitable for hunting medium to large-sized games at a decent range.
