Prvi Partizan (PPU) are Serbian and produce ammunition of all types, their current catalogue shows over 400 options, which includes calibres for classic shooters, as well as current sporting types. They are distributed in the UK by Henry Krank & Co. Ltd. On test, is one of the most famous US handgun cartridges; the 44 Remington Magnum. Once rated as the most powerful handgun calibre in the world, it still represents a good performer, for both rifle and pistol. In the UK, it’s primarily used in lever-action rifles. PPU offers seven loadings, from 180 to 300-grains, in a choice of bullet types that included jacketed soft or hollow point, lead and fully plated. On test is their 240-grain, truncated cone, FPJ (flat point jacketed). The rimmed, brass case is Boxer-primed (Large Pistol) so good for reloading. It’s individually packed in 50-round boxes, with cardboard dividers to keep the ammo safe. Factory figures, using an 8” barrel shows a muzzle velocity (MV) of 1541 fps and 1268 ft/lbs of energy. Using a 16” Marlin 1894, we got an average MV of 1732 fps, extreme spread (ES) of 23 fps and standard deviation (S/D) of 11.5fps. Energy was calculated at 1599 ft/lbs at muzzle and 1007 ft/lbs at 100 yards, both of which are healthy figures for this calibre. The 240-grain bullet has a ballistic coefficient of 0.175, and when zeroed at 25 yards produces the following figures;

Distance(yds) Velocity(fps) Energy(ft/lbs) Drop(inches)
0 1732 1599 0.1
25 1635 1424 0
50 1543 1268 0.71
75 1456 1129 2.34
100 1374 1007 4.99
