Yes they do make it. I picked up a box of magtech 240 gr .44 mag hardball. Now if only our armed forces could carry that in a side arm! All kidding aside if I could have a choice in what I could carry as a side arm if I was deployed I could do worse than a model 29 or a m44. Of course thats what I shoot normally, I know most people don't like it or can't control it. I have a feeling the stuff would just overpenetrate tremendously so as a defensive round, it's kind of limited.
