44-40 Ammo
200 grain JHP

With this 44-40 ammo we set out to build the best possible hunting round for grandpa's old lever action. There just isn't many options out there for a quality 44-40 cartridge. The Problem with building a great hunting bullet is that it has to walk a fine line. The bullet must be soft enough to expand well, yet it needs to be hard enough to retain its mass and get good penetration. With this jacketed hollow point we found the perfect balance, as well as being extremely accurate. the soft jacket shell of the bullet seats well in the barrel, reducing any gas blow-by and making this a very accurate round. This hand crafted 44-40 hunting ammo is loaded in premium Starline brass with as much attention to detail as if we were loading for our own 44-40 rifle on opening day of deer season.

We offer these premium 44-40 cartridges in standard 50 round boxes or in bulk 250 round box option as well.

More Info
  • 44-40 ammo has a rich history is the development of this great country and is often associated with “The Gun That Won The West”. Winchester introduced the then .44 Winchester as the standard chambering for their new model 1873 rifle, which over the years became know as “the Gun That Won The West”. As popularity grew for the new cartridge it picked up various names such as .44-40 which comes from the caliber .44, and the popular black powder load of the time 40 grains. This was a fairly common naming system in those days. You will also see 44-40 ammo referred to as .44 WCF (Winchester Center Fire), or .44 Largo is Spanish speaking countries. 44-40 ammo was really the first to be both a pistol and a rifle cartridge.
