The .44 Remington Magnum, often shortened to just .44 Magnum, is a large-bore cartridge designed for revolvers. Elmer Keith fashioned the round after years of fine-tuned handloading of the .44 special. Keith used this round based on the varied projectiles available, as well as the brass being thicker and stronger than the outdated .45 colt case. Also, the .44 Special case was smaller in diameter than the .45 Colt case.
Also, the .44 Special case was smaller in diameter than the .45 Colt case. Smith & Wesson's first .44 Magnum revolver, the Model 29, was built on December 15, 1955, and the gun was announced to the public on January 19, 1956. By the summer of 1956, Ruger became aware of this project and began work on a single action Blackhawk revolver for the new .44 Magnum cartridge. A popular rumor says a Ruger employee found a cartridge case marked ".44 Remington Magnum" and took it to Bill Ruger, while another says a Remington employee provided Ruger with early samples of the ammunition. Ruger began shipping their new revolver in late November of 1956.
The .44 Rem Mag was an instant success. Later, films such as “Dirty Harry” only proved to increase the fandom around this caliber. The caliber is still prominent toady, even though modern alloys and technology have led to larger and more powerful calibers.
