    Performance[edit]

    The .444 Marlin can push a 240-grain (16 g) bullet at velocities over 2,400 ft/s (730 m/s) generating 3,070 ft·lbf (4,160 J) of energy

    In a heavily modified lever gun (or a properly throated single/double rifle) 444 Marlin can equal the 450-400 3", that is 400gr@2100.

    44 Magnum is legal, too, since the change in the requirements that lowered the ft/lbs muzzle energy for some species.
