44 S&W American Ammo

by Remington/UMC

Circa 1911

The 44 S&W American Central Fire cartridge was originally developed for the early S&W American Revolver. In addition, this S&W 44 caliber ammo cartridge would fit the Winchester 1866 “Yellow Boys” that had breech pins converted to fire center fire cartridges. Therefore, the 44 S&W American cartridge was the accepted bullet used in converted 66’s. That is to say, true center fire Henry cartridges are extremely rare and seldom encountered.

Although converted 1866 Winchesters are common, the cartridges for them are not. We are offering this full box of 44 S&W American cartridges for sale to those of you looking for the correct ammo to display with your converted 1866 Winchester.
