Weapons using this ammunition

Variants

.44 Magnum round, hollow point

Hollow point bullets break on impact, reducing the weapon's penetrating power.

.44 Magnum round, SWC (hand load)

This flat-nosed bullet is effective against higher-level enemies and can penetrate armor. These characteristics make it much more effective than standard ball ammunition.

.44 special round

The parent cartridge for the .44 Magnum, the .44 special that shares all dimensions except case length. It is similar enough to be used in guns chambered for the .44 Magnum cartridge.

Locations

Notes

  • The .44 special rounds used to be the rarest type of .44 caliber ammunition in the game, with a single box appearing in only one location, the NCR Ranger safehouse. They were added to vendor lists with patch 1.3.0.452.
  • If one looks closely at the headstamp on the cartridge's model, it reads ".357 Magnum".
  • The cartridge model differs in appearance to the rounds loaded into the .44 Magnum revolver.
