The .44 Magnum makes a statement. Even those not in the know about ballistics understand the awesome power of this cartridge, thanks to movies like Dirty Harry; who could forget Clint Eastwood describing it as the most powerful gun in the world, then asking his antagonist if he felt lucky? It’s a compelling round that more than leaves a mark; it leaves an enormous hole. If you use your .44 Magnum for personal protection, you can have the utmost confidence in its one-shot stopping abilities and overwhelming knockdown power, but you do need to make sure you load your gun with hollow points.
These are Hornady’s XTP rounds. They’re hollow points, so they’re excellent for self-defense, and their XTP technology – eXtreme Terminal Performance – ensures they have carefully controlled expansion as the round mushrooms to 1.5 times its original diameter. It also has a heavier, stronger jacket, created to withstand more extreme pressure and greater velocity. At 180 grain these are lightweight for the cartridge, and many experienced shooters favor them because they have all of the desired strength without the excessive recoil. These rounds have a muzzle velocity of 1,550 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 960 foot-pounds.
Hornady was founded in 1949 by Joyce Hornady, a marksman who served as a marksmanship instructor for the military during World War II. They’ve come a long way since they first began producing ammunition in a rented garage, but the city hasn’t changed; all their ammunition is produced to high standards at their plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. There are 20 defense rounds in this box, which is a great size for storing in your safe or loading your favorite handgun for personal protection. Self-defense is serious business and requires a serious round; this is it.
