In addition to being historically authentic, lead round nose bullets have the added benefit of cycling in tubular magazines safely. This makes this ammo suitable for rivles as well as revolvers!
These rounds come with a few modern conveniences like smokeless powder and non-corrosive Boxer primers that make a shooter's life easier without affecting the nostalgia. They also use reloadable brass cases.
The 44-40 cartridge was developed by Winchester and first sold in 1873. Suitable for use in both rifles and revolvers, it has been used for hunting and on both sides of the law.
