44 Special 190 Grain Lead Semi-Wadcutter Hollow Point Gas Check

0.92 LBS

Product Description

All non-jacketed lead bullets, whether it may be cast, hard cast, wad-cutter, etc. "smoke" to some degree due to the wax/lube needed in the manufacturing process. With the high perfomance and velocity we achieve it is nearly impossible to stop this from happening. Higher chamber pressures, higher velocites, and higher temperatures mean more smoke in this case. The only way to create less smoke would be to sacrifice performance, which has never been our goal.

This ammunition is safe to fire in any firearm chambered in 44 Special or 44 Remington Magnum except for Charter Arms Bull Dog. Do Not Fire this ammunition in a Charter Arms Bull Dog.

Built to the tightest tolerances for peak performance rivaling and sometimes surpassing hand loads in many guns. This round was developed with a porojectile that is soft enough to expand upon impact, but hard enough to not lead the barrel of a of a normal revolver.


Nickel plated casings with our new nickel plating process provides several key benefits, not limited to but including; improved feeding in all actions of firearms, enhanced corrosion resistance over traditional brass, improved cosmetics, and ease of cleanup during reloading.  Nickel plated casings will not tarnish like brass during storage or when in contact with foreign materials such as leather, moisture, and other metals.


Until the development of the Ducta-Bright 7a process, nickel plating casings often limited the number of reloads as compared to raw brass.  It was claimed that nickel plated brass casings “embrittled” the brass therefor making it less desirable for reloaders despite the ease of cleanup that nickel plating offers.  In addition, ammunition engineers raising concerns of using nickel plating in “very hot” +P or magnum loads found that traditional nickel plating often cracked deep-drawn cases, or worse, lead to a total failure. This new process eliminates any concern, to the shooter or reloader, of hazard or ability to re-use the brass.

As with all of Underwood Ammo’s rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light

All of our ammo is loaded with flash suppressed powder so that your visibility will not be compromised if you need to discharge your firearm in low light.

While taking advantage of our state of the art testing equipment, this high performance ammunition is field tested using popular, real firearms that our customers are most likely to own out in the real world with all the elements you would experience. If for some reason Underwood Ammunition fails to meet performance expectations, we stand by our product 100% and will make sure the customer is satisfied with every purchase.

This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

  1. Shoots easy and POA 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2016

    This load is pretty easy shooting out of my Ruger Redhawk 4.2 inch barrel and shot POA for me. I would not hesitate to use this as carry or field ammo. It smoked ever so slightly but not enough to complain about. Cleanup was easy as well, no barrel leading. Customer service, shipping and packaging is top notch.

    This ammo is one of the very best personal defense ammo ever crafted by Underwood. Perfect balance of power, penetration and accuracy. Perfect ammo for my Rossi 720 or S&W 696. 44 SPL afficionados, rejoice!

    Nice 44 Special rounds projecting out of my Taurus Tracker T2 Talo 44 Magnum 2" barrel

  5. Mild recoil 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jan 2016

    Wanted something a little milder to shoot in my new Taurus Tracker .44 magnum 34 oz. gun this fits the bill perfect. As usual very good quality and superb service. Customer for life. Also great name

  6. superb short barrel power 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2015

    Looking for strong self-defense round for Smith model 69 but with sub-44 mag recoil. The Underwood 190 gr SWC is as devastating out of the 69 (4 inch barrel) as the Marlin 1894 (20 inch barrel) and yet recoil is very manageable__notably less than the 255 gr gas check 44 special but with better results on water bottles.

  7. This 44 Special is special! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2015

    This is the most powerful commercial .44 Special loading that I have ever fired! Very Accurate. It comparable or better than many low end 44 mag loadings.
