    I guess one of the most controversial topics with the 44-40 is the killing power and accuracy at distances greater than 150 yards.
    Quite understandable but lets not focus too much on accuracy as much as the actual killing powder.
    Yes, you have to have both to be "effective" but the following is only informative and does not come to any conclusion...just data collecting.

    43-214A Ballistics Test

    If properly tested in 1/2" pine boards, I do think it would have penetrated 2 1/2 boards, or more, @ 750fps.
    If shot from a rifle (1,350fps), it is calculated that the bullet will travel to 400 yards as the velocity drops to 750fps.
    According to Winchester's 1875 catalog, the bullet was reported to penetrate 8 each, 1/2" pine boards at 1,000 yards.

ID:	253490Another bullet, no water....entered from right to left, turned slightly before stopping at about 3/4" penetration. The 220gr bullet retained 218.5gr with nearly 3/4" expansion.

    The following video link shows the proper way to test pine board penetration when testing ballistics per Army specs. back in the day.
