Gun Descriptions

About 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 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. Manufacturer 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. Uses 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 .475 Wildey Magnum Ammo was always intended to be a hunting cartridge and take down any big species easily. The parent case used to design this cartridge was the .284 Winchester Ammo, with the neck cut down and widened to allow .475 caliber Ammo while the length was kept the same. The .475 Wildey Magnum Ammo gained a lot of popularity thanks to its appearance in the movie Death Wish 3, where the Wildey handgun was a signature weapon. Later in the years, the .475 Wildey Magnum Ammo was necked down to create three calibers to achieve higher muzzle energy and velocities. The .475 Wildey Magnum Ammo has an overall length of 40.1mm, and the diameter of the bullet measures 12.1mm. The lightest variant of the .475 Wildey Magnum Ammo is the 250-grain bullet load which can travel at a velocity of 1,850 feet per second while creating an energy level of 1,900 ft. lbf. Manufacturer The .475 Wildey Magnum Ammo was based on the designs of the .284 Winchester Ammo and was designed in 1977 by Winchester Repeating Arms Company and manufactured in 1984 by Wildey Inc.
