How the 429 DE Stacks up Against 44 Mag and 50 AE (VIDEO)
Magnum Research‘s new .429 DE cartridge shows potential but how does it compare to the legacy .44 Magnum and .50 AE rounds? To find out, Scott with Kentucky Ballistics managed to get his hands all three and pits them against each other on a pine board test while running a chrono.
The new .429 DE is essentially a .50 AE necked down to accept a .44 slug with a sharp 30-degree shoulder and a neck long enough to hold a 240-grain bullet without setback under recoil. Capable of producing velocities in the 1,600 fps range with 240-grain bullets (and 1,750 fps with 210s), Magnum Research says the resulting cartridge has a 25 percent uptick in velocity and 45 percent increase in energy over a .44 Mag from a 6-inch barrel.
