45 Vs 44 Mag. The.44 magnum has high stopping power and is suitable for hunters, while the.45 acp is accurate and best for law enforcers. A.45 super can and will shoot.45 acp with minimal tinkering, to me a big bonus, again, to me.45 super gets the nod.
The 44 mag’s case is nearly the same length as the 357 mag’s, but its greater diameter gives it approximately 45 percent more capacity for propellant. This new target is not. Test firing firearms is a passion of mine.
Buffalo Bore Makes Some Heavy 45 Colt +P Loads That Push A 325Gr Hard Cast At An Advertised 1100Fps.
The first is their bullet diameters. The 45 colt can be made to perform equal to 44 magnum velocities with less pressure than the 44 magnum simply because the gasses have more bullet base for the gasses to push on. So, in terms of diameter, the.45 colt is “bigger” and in terms of overall length, the.44 magnum is “bigger”.
The 45 Colt Cartridge Was Always The 44 Magnums Equal(Or Close Enough That The Difference Doesn't Matter) However The Guns Designed For The Round Were Not The Equal To The Guns That Were Developed Along With The 44 Magnum Thus The 45 Colt Cartridges True Potential Was Not Realized Until Bill Ruger Made A Gun That Could Handle That Potential.
X velocity divided by 7000.44 mag.429 x 240 x 1600 / 7000 = 23.53 ko 45/70.458 x 325 x 1650 / 7000 = 35.09ko These two are among my favorites. The 44 is more efficient and lot quieter than the 45/70.

If you handload and make sure not to use those loads in anything other than a 92 and/or ruger blackhawk or old model vaquero. The 44 mag’s case is nearly the same length as the 357 mag’s, but its greater diameter gives it approximately 45 percent more capacity for propellant. While the 10mm ammunition is a true 40 caliber round with a.40” diameter bullet, the 44 mag’s bullet is nearly.03” greater in diameter.
Recoil Comparison Between Imi Desert Eagle, Wildey Surviror And The New Croatian Hs Xdm.
However, they have some drawbacks as a result of the larger recoil force, which could lead to inaccuracy. This is the short version of the 44 magnum vs the 45 acp. Test firing firearms is a passion of mine.
The Most Common Factory Loads For The.45 Colt Give A 225 Grain Lead Hp Bullet A Muzzle Velocity Of 960 Fps And An Energy Of 460 Ft.
To put this into perspective, a boeing 737 commercial airliner travels at a cruising speed of 600 mph, or 880 fps. The formula is caliber x bullet wt. So to sum up, the difference between.44 magnum and.45 colt is about 0.023 of bullet diameter, about 10 grains of bullet weight (<10% gap), almost 400 fps of initial velocity (~40% gap.
