Nosler makes a .44 caliber 200 grain SJHP.

Looks like a nasty projectile!!!

I'm guessing, from the way he phrased the question - magnum or special - that he means loaded ammo, not bullets. Best I can tell, Nosler does not load 44 pistol ammo.

Winchester has 44 magnums in Platinum Tip - 250 grain, Razor Boar hollow point - 225 grain, and Silvertip - 240 grain.

Then taking a quick look at Graf and Sons, I see that Barnes, Federal, Fiochhi, Hornady, CCI and Magtech all have ammo that meets your requirement of 200 grain or heavier JHP.

Im interested in a load with a semi jacket for self defense so loading them would be a no for me . I wonder if the silvertips in the mag version would be decent,?

I don't think Remington makes the SJHP rounds anymore.

Your best bet for self defense is, IMO, the CCI/Blazer 200 gr. Gold Dot, JHP, in 44 Spl. A decent price here:

Well, I load my own .44 Specials with the Remington 240 gr. SJHP an use nickel cases, as I carry my cartridges in a leather belt slide.

I recently bought some Winchester Silvertips in .44 Special but I'm not very impressed with these.

Sad that Remington does not produce the SJHP (I call them Scalloped Jacket instead of the factory Semi-Jacketed designation) for handloading anymore. Per their website they just have rifle bullets as components now. I know they still factory load them in the .357 Magnum in 125 and 158 Grain. The 125 SJHPs hit extremely hard and are my personal pick for a self defense load in the .357 Magnum.

I have shot a boatload of them in the .357 and .44 Magnums. Remington used to make a .44 180 Grain SJHP that would do about 1800 fps in my 7.5 Inch Ruger Redhawk and would split water filled 2 and 3 Liter Coke Bottles completely in half upon impact.

Just my .02,

Even though Federal calls them JHP they are actually SJHP

I recently contacted Remington about this and they told me they are not discontinued but production is halted for more popular selling items. Production will resume, but they would not say when.

Sort of interesting the Federal round Dr Rob linked and the American Eagle I linked appear to be the exact same cartridge- 240 gr SJHP. Doing a compare on their site shows all velocity and energy graphs to be identical.

Ballistics Information:
Muzzle Velocity: 1230 fps
Muzzle Energy: 806 ft. lbs.

Yet they show one as a hunting round and the other as a practice/target round

Good to hear. Remington SJHP (in .357) was insanely accurate in my Dan Wesson. I'll have to look out for cartridges or components to try in my .44's.
