"The Garrett Hammerhead is heavier, faster, and has a better designed bullet (weight forward) than anything Buffalo Bore makes in .45 Colt. In additon, Buffalo Bore's .44 mag load is also heavier and faster than any .45 Colt load they produce. Advantage: .44 magnum."
Yes and yes - you are right and I stand corrected. The only thing that will out penetrate Garrett bullets are the Punch bullets.

I'd go with the 45 Colt, 4.2" barrel. Yes I have one & a 44 mag. Even if your not a reloader you can find some heavy loads. I like the shorter 4.2" barrel. Get a 'Simply Rugged' holster for it & your all set. My max loads are 265 grn Cast performance bullets & win-296 powder.
