    Default Which would pack more punch,44-40 or 44 S&W special ?

    I'm not sure what kind of velocity one would get from the standard 246 grain round nose 44 special factory load,fired from a 20 inch rifle barrel--and which would pack more wallop,this rifle/load combo or the old 44-40 rifle (same barrel length) shooting the standard 200 grain factory loads?

    Thanks--but that was not really the question--I wanted to compare the 44-40 and the 44S&W special (not 44 Mag).

    It is early-- Still doesn't answer my question though...the chart showed pistol barrel lengths...I was wondering about comparing the load as fired from a 20 inch rifle barrel (ie more velocity).
