.44 Caliber (.4295) 300 gr. JSPDesigned for hunting, specifically for large bears, and for Handgun Metallic Silhouette competition with magnum calibers, this 300 grain #8630 Jacketed Soft Point bullet was introduced in 1989. Its construction ensures deep penetration on the largest game due to a heavy jacket and extremely hard 6% antimony core. This is one of the heaviest bullets Sierra produces and should be used in a 44 Magnum, 445 Super Mag, or a similar cartridge. It has an established reputation in the game fields of North America and is considered to be the bullet for hunting dangerous game with a handgun. It is not, however, recommended for deer-size game because of its hardness. Because this bullet has a cannelure and can be roll-crimped, it may be loaded in cartridges and used in modern rifles with tubular magazines.
When seated to the cannelure, this bullet will have an overall length that does not feed well in lever action rifles. Recommended OAL of 1.735" in 44 Magnum.

|I load these with W-296 for a velocity of 1,165 fps from a 5.5" Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 magnum. Accuracy is excellent. Penetration is deep. Expansion is just right. They flatten and roll back a little without fragmenting. Weight retention is near 100%. I've tried 300 grain hard cast bullets, but have not found one that will hold together the way these bullets do.|
