Who among us doesn’t know the famous scene in “Dirty Harry” that led to the Hollywood fame of the .44 Magnum? But do you know the whole line? It isn’t actually “Do you feel lucky?” and the entire dialogue is more interesting than just that one part, too: “I know what you’re thinking, ‘Did he fire 6 shots or 5?’ Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?” While it’s true the .44 Magnum isn’t exactly the most powerful handgun in the world, it’s certainly near the top of the heap, and no one wants to find themselves facing its business end.
If you use your .44 Magnum for self-defense purposes, you should keep it loaded with defense rounds. Yes, your gun is capable of impressive force without them, but there are other reasons to use defense ammunition than just power. Expanding rounds decelerate as they expand, which prevents over-penetration, which, in turn, protects innocent bystanders. They also produce crippling wound tracks while target rounds simply produce a through-and-through, and that doesn’t do as much damage as you might expect. Take a look at these defense rounds from the legendary Italian company Fiocchi.
At 240 grain these are fairly lightweight for the cartridge size, but they’re plenty big enough to stop your assailant with one shot. These are JHPs, so they expand on impact, but thanks to their jackets expansion is controlled, which allows them to penetrate more deeply than standard HPs. Because of that these JHPs produce deeper, more catastrophic wound cavities. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1180 feet per second and muzzle energy of 740 foot-pounds. These defense rounds are made by Fiocchi, a company with almost 150 years in business. Their headquarters are in Lecco, Italy, but they have an Ozark, Missouri, plant for U.S. distribution. There are 50 defense rounds in this box of ammunition. Order now and find out just what your .44 Magnum can do with the power of a Jacketed Hollow Point.
