Magtech's take on a classic Western cartridge is a great choice for cowboy action shooting with a Model 1873. Manufactured by Latin America's largest munitions company, this ammunition fires a 225 grain lead flat nose bullet ideal for the steel targets and tubular magazines common in action shooting sports. A muzzle velocity of about 725 feet per second provides good accuracy at short to medium range with minimal recoil so you can blast away with ease.
These cartridges come with the comforts of modern ammunition including smokeless powder, non-corrosive Boxer primers, and brass cases. However, they do use non-jacketed lead bullets. Not all ranges (particularly indoor ones) allow lead-nosed ammo, so check before ordering if you intend to shoot indoors,
The 44-40 was Winchester's first centerfire cartridge and saw use in both revolvers and long guns from 1873 onwards. Although superseded by newer designs for many uses, it remains a popular target shooting and deer hunting round. The 225 grain bullet is a modern phenomenon designed specifically for cowboy action shooting; historically, a 200 grain projectile was more common.
CBC, the largest ammo company in Latin America, is the manufacturer of Magtech cartridges. The company manufactures all of its ammunition components in-house for enhanced quality control and is known for delivering good quality at a moderate price.
