44 Remington Magnum Rifle Cartridge:
 The 44 Remington Magnum cartridge was introduced to the public in 1955 in a collaberation between Remington and Smith&Wesson. While the 44 magnum was introduced as a new and very powerful handgun cartridge, it is also a great carbine rifle cartridge as well. The 44 magnum cartridge chambered in a good fast handling carbine rifle is the perfect rifle for hunting deer up to elk size at close range, it is extremely effective in heavy cover where shots will be under 50 yards.

 The .44 magnum has enough power and bullet energy at 50 yards in a carbine rifle to shoot clear through an elk and with a bullet diameter of .430 inch the wound channel is quite large. For those that like big heavy bullets for such work the 300 grain XTP bullet by Hornady is very accurate in a carbine rifle. The 300 grain XTP bullet of Hornady's delivers more than a half ton of energy at 50 yards and there is not many animals in North America that can stand up to that kind of force. The .44 Remington Magnum is an excellent short range deer and black bear cartridge for North American woods hunting.
