44 Special

The .44 Smith & Wesson Special, also commonly known as .44 S&W Special or .44 Special is a smokeless centerfire revolver cartridge developed by Smith & Wesson in 1907 as the standard chambering in their New Century Revolver which was introduced in 1908. On the late 19th century American frontier, large .44 and .45 caliber cartridges were considered the epitome of handgun ammunition for self-protection, home defense and hunting. At the start of the 20th century, Smith & Wesson introduced a brand new revolver aptly named the “New Century” revolver. Unfortunately, the ballistics of the new cartridge merely duplicated the .44 Russian, when its powder capacity would have supported ballistics rivaling the .45 Colt. Nevertheless, the .44 Special retained its progenitor’s reputation for accuracy. At Velocity, we strive to stock a wide variety of the best brands shooters are looking for.
