I don't believe there is a +P SAAMI designation for the magnums. That won't stop a manufacturer from using the term though. One question would be +P relative to what? If it is relative to the current SAAMI .44 Mag maximum, you may be OK because it may still be under the original .44 magnum pressure designation?

Frankly, I would check with the manufacturer.

Why would you need a +P loading of a 44 magnum, anyway? :)

I use hotter loads and bigger bullets in my contender, it just has to fit and it will work.

Only one of those three links show a "+P" designation, and then they go on to say they are loading to SAAMI maximum specs.

Outta My DE.....

.......comes the most powerful loads that can be concocked at my reloading bench.

My DE has withstood the power of the same loads that people use in their Ruger Red Hawks and Super Blackhawks.Not the heavy weight hardcast but the jacketed bullets that are of the 265 and 300gr variety.

My weapon is almost 20 years old and has countless full power loads through it. So my answer to your question is .....YES. -----pruhdlr

CAUTION --> NO LEAD !!

The lube on the hard cast bullets will probable clog the gas ports on the Desert Eagle
