.44 Magnum is a type of ammunition in Fallout and Fallout 2.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

.44 Magnum is a powerful, large-bore cartridge originally designed for revolvers. These rounds are more valuable and harder-hitting than the commonly available 10mm. FMJ rounds of this caliber fare reasonably well against armor while suffering no penalty to damage, while hollow points are exceptionally deadly against lightly-armored targets.

Variants[edit | edit source]

There are two variants of .44 Magnum ammunition:

  • .44 Magnum FMJ (A brick of ammunition, .44 Magnum caliber, full metal jacket.)
  • .44 Magnum JHP (A brick of ammunition, .44 Magnum caliber, hollow-point.)

In Fallout, ammunition modifiers are not applied properly, which makes the .44 equal to any other kind of ammunition and both JHP and FMJ versions f due to an executable bug unctionally identical.
