.44 Caliber (.4295) 240 gr. JHCDesigned for the hunter requiring accuracy, penetration and dependable expansion from a 44 Remington Magnum revolver, Sierra introduced the 240 grain #8610 Jacketed Hollow Cavity SportsMaster bullets in 1970. These bullets were upgraded with Sierra's PowerJacket in 1982. The dependable Jacketed Hollow Cavity and PowerJacket design makes these bullets extremely versatile. They are true magnum bullets, featuring a heavy jacket and 1 1/2% antimony core, yet they will expand reliably at 44 Special velocities. These bullets are extremely effective on up to deer-size game. The 240 grain #8610 bullets are intended for larger, more tenacious game, but also are effective for deer-size game. These bullets may also be used in another "old timer," the venerable 44-40 Winchester (44 WCF) cartridge in western-style single-action revolvers and rifles now popular for Cowboy Shooting. Because these bullets have flat noses and cannelures, they may be roll-crimped for use in revolvers and all rifles with tubular magazines.

|I switched to this bullet in the early 80's after trying several others. Have tried others since then but in my opinion, nothing else performs like this. Extremely accurate and have never lost an animal shot with this bullet. I use it in both, my 336 Marlin and Redhawk and have taken deer with the redhawk using this bullet at over 100 yards.!|
