.44 Caliber (.4295) 300 gr. JSP

Designed 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 not feed from a 444 Marlin rifle having a tubular magazine.)

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.
