    Icon14 Buffalo Bore's Special .44s

    It may not be en vogue these days, but when it comes to charging a revolver for self-defense I know a lot of salty ol' dawgs who still pass on high-tech hollowpoints in favor of a full wadcutter. Moderately charged, full wadcutters are legendary when it comes to the incapacitation of living mammals.

    Buffalo Bore now has a very interesting offering they call, "Anti-Personnel .44 Special", a standard pressure, low flash, 200 Grain, FULL Wadcutter load. While that's the good news, the even-better news is this load is totally compatible with the moderately priced, well-made Charter Arms .44 Special Bulldog. cat=1&type=Revolver&cal=44SP&fin

    ANTI-PERSONNEL 44 Special Ammo - 200 gr. Hard Cast Wadcutter (1,000 fps) - 20 Round Box


    This load was developed to be used in ALL/ANY 44 SPL firearms including Charter Arms. Our other heavy 44 SPL loads exclude the Charter Arms as suitable for use with them. Due to popular request to make a potent defensive load in 44 SPL that can be fired in ALL 44 SPL or 44 MAG. firearms, we’ve developed this hard cast Wadcutter 200gr. load. It utilizes a “low flash” powder as nearly all defensive shooting in the US occur in low light when the criminal element is at work and it would place the shooter in a defenseless position if he or she were blinded by the flash of their own gun fire on the first shot.

    As always Buffalo Bore uses real, over-the-counter firearms to determine our published, real-world velocities. We do this rather than follow the industry-wide, duplicitous practice of using extra long test barrels to generate exaggerated velocities that the ammo user will seldom, if ever see. With Buffalo Bore you can always know what velocity your ammunition is generating in the real world, versus a sterile, ambient controlled laboratory using long, highly efficient test barrels. See our real world velocities below:
    1. 1036 fps - Ruger Super Black Hawk, 5.5 inch barrel
    2. 971 fps - S&W MT Gun, 4 inch barrel
    3. 948 fps - S&W Mod. 396, 3 inch barrel
    4. 920 fps - Charter Arms Bull Dog, 3 inch barrel
    5. 913 fps - S&W Mod. 296, 2 inch barrel
    This load is designed to permanently and quickly disable human threats. The big flat wadcutter nose crushes living tissue as it passes through, unlike mushroomed bullets that are slightly rounded on the nose and tend to slip and slide through living tissue. The crushing action of the flat nose keeps penetration straight and when penetration remains straight, it is generally very deep—deep enough to obtain full penetration on the largest human from any angle. The hard cast construction will not deform on flesh and bone at these velocities so the nose profile remains constant along with bullet path and terminal damage.

    Noted NYPD “stake out” officer and gun fighter Jim Cirillo used full wadcutters in his 38 SPL revolvers because they incapacitated his human targets with certainty. See our Item 20D (38 SPL)

    Expect about 24 inches of straight-line penetration in living mammalian tissue with this load.

    This load utilizes a hard cast (not soft lead) properly lubed bullet and will not substantially lead foul your barrel, even if you fire hundreds of rounds.
