For an overview of .44 ammunition types in the Fallout series of games, see .44 Magnum.


The .44 round, Magnum is a type of ammunition in Fallout 3.


Very few enemies carry weapons that use this ammunition, and as such it is virtually never found on bodies and must be either purchased or looted from stockpiles, where it is still uncommon. Even with the Scrounger perk, .44 Magnum ammunition still remains less common than 10mm or .32 caliber ammunition. However, significant caches can be found, drastically improving the usefulness of those powerful weapons. Because it's not common in the Capital Wasteland and it has high stopping power, .44 Magnum round is more expensive than any pistol caliber ammunition.

Several merchants will frequently have large quantities of .44 Magnum ammunition in stock (10, 15, even 20+):

  • In the Citadel, ammunition is restored to the armory (within the lab, and conveniently next to a room with beds available for sleeping) every 3 days. Sleeping for (3) 24 hour periods will usually make .44 ammunition available to be bought in fairly large quantities from the armory. This also works with any of the other arms supply shops, scavengers, and merchants in the game.
  • In The Pitt, after the main quest (Free Labor) is complete, the ammo press can make .44 Magnum ammunition using any type of conventional ammunition or scrap metal, making this ammunition much easier to get.
