.44 Russian Ammunition

Also known as: 44 Russian

The .44 Russian was released by Smith and Wesson in 1870 and brought the first design with an internally lubricated bullet in modern ammunition. Eventually the Russian army purchased more than 131.000 S&W Model 3 revolvers for use with the .44 chambering. Revolvers were also created to work with the .44 in many European countries during the 1920’s. The .44 Russian was popular among American civilians as well and quickly grew a loyal following thanks to its extreme accuracy. It went on to set many records before successor designs surfaced as the .44 Special in 1907 and later the .44 Magnum in 1956.
