Developed by Dick Casull, Duane Marsh, and Jack Fullmer in 1958, 454 Casull Ammo is a powerful wildcat firearm cartridge. The design of this ammo is based on the .45 Colt case, so both .45 Schofield and .45 Colt cartridges can fit well in 454 Casull’s chamber. Because of the high chamber pressure of over 60,000 CUP, this cartridge uses a small rifle primer instead of pistol primer. 454 Casull Ammo comes in a .45 colt case that is about 0.10 inches in length. Bullet weight is around 240 to 300 grains and delivers a muzzle velocity of 1900 feet per second. These rounds can be loaded to a maximum of 65,000 psi pressure and the pressure when fired will be over 60,000 CUP. 454 Casull Specification: Cartridge case: .45 Colt Case type: Rimmed straight Bullet diameter: 11.5 mm (.452 in) Neck diameter: 12.2 mm (480 in) Base diameter: 12.2 mm (.480 in) Rim diameter: 13.0 mm (.512 in) Rim thickness: 1.4 mm (.057 in) Case length: 35.1 mm (1.383 in) Overall length: 45 mm (1.77 in) Case capacity: 2.95 cm3 Primer type: Boxer Small rifle Maximum pressure (SAAMI): 65,000 psi (450 MPa) The 454 Casull is a hard-hitting handgun cartridge perfect for hunting dangerous animals. It is produced by several manufacturers and is available in different types including full metal jacket (FMJ), hollow point, jacketed hollow point (JHP), soft point, and semi-jacketed hollow point (SJSP). The 454 Casull is powerful and is loaded with a lot of powder to make the bullet travel at a supersonic speed. Recoil is stronger than similar ammos.
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 .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. 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.
