.44 Cartridge


.44 Cartridge-Are the cartridges used in the .44 Marlin and .44 Winchester the same?

The .44 Marlin and .44 Winchester are the cartridges we call the .44-40 and are both the same and both shoot 40 grains of black powder. The Winchester cartridge has a 200 grain bullet and the Marlin a 217 grain bullet. The Marlin would be best to use on such game as wolves and foxes up to 200 yards. The .32-20-100 is also good up to 200 yards, but not so good as the .44-40 as the bullet is too light. Some of the rifle makers are claiming that these two cartridges will do good work at 300 yards, but in all of my shooting I have found out that over 200 yards I could not depend on either one in windy weather. The U.M.C. Cartridge Co. claim that the limit is 150-200 yards. If shooting is to be done over 200 yards I would advise a .32-40 Marlin or Stevens with special smokeless steel barrel to shoot the new high velocity cartridges that are fine for wolves and foxes. Another thing with this .32-40 is that you can shoot the factory cartridges with full charge of powder or lighter for target shooting and not lead your barrel as the rifle is made with a slow twist, one turn in 16 or 18 inches.
