Owner of Buffalo Bore Tim Sundles on Heavy 44 Special Ammunition:

Our purpose in developing this HEAVY 44 SPL load was to duplicate our renowned 38 SPL +P 158 gr. soft cast HP @ 1000 fps out of a 2 inch revolver, (Item 20A) but with a 190gr. 44 caliber bullet. This load was designed SPECIFICALLY for defensive use against humans. You can see our below velocities fired from my real world stock revolvers. We use only real world firearms in developing our published velocities and feel it is dishonest to use extra long laboratory test barrels that give false high velocities that over-the-counter carry guns cannot duplicate. You need to know what your ammo is doing in the real world, not a lab.

  • 1.1156 fps - Ruger Super Blackhawk, 5.5 inch barrel
  • 2.1098 fps - S&W MT Gun, 4 Inch barrel
  • 3.1046 fps - S&W mod. 696, 3 inch barrel
  • 4.1057 fps - S&W mod. 396, 3 inch barrel
  • 5.1005 fps - S&W mod. 296, 2 inch barrel


  • We developed this bullet to be soft (6 BHN) enough to mushroom at impact speeds around 750 fps, yet we wanted it hard enough (pure lead is 4 BHN) that it would not lead a normal revolver barrel. This bullet accomplishes both requirements. Depending on impact velocities, expect about 18 inches of penetration in living mammalian tissues, which should give ample penetration at bad angles to disable.

    This bullet was also designed with a special crimp groove and the case mouth is heavily crimped and this bullet will NOT jump crimp in the lightweight alloy revolvers, provided you rotate the unfired rounds and thus do not expose unfired rounds to the recoil of more than about 10 firings.

    We are using a flash suppressed powder so you won't become blinded by your own gunfire in the likely event you drop the hammer in a low-light defensive situation.

    ATTENTION: Not intended for use in the Charter Arms Bulldog.
