38/357 or 44 special in a bulldog is a far better round then the 40SW will ever be in a revolver . No need for fancy extractor for the 357 or 44 and a lot easier to reload . The 40SW goes from mild to wild with only a super small mistake in reloading it and there isn't any extra meat on Charter Arms revolver . I had a 44 bulldog , great gun .

true...................

but there is one very positive aspect about it................all of the many, many rounds of 40 brass laying around discarded at the range......at least around these parts.

i will pass on it......but still find the concept interesting.

word has it that a 45acp and a 9/380 will be coming out as well.

Here a pic of a 44 spec , you can see there is no meat on cylinder . The 44 spec is around 20,000 psi and the 40SW works on over 35,000 psi . SCARE . The 45 acp works on about 18,000 psi , but I don't think that cylinder could handle to be bore anymore . I'm quessing the PSI , to lazy to look them up .

Thanks for the video, at least i could reload for that one safely. As you said plenty of 40 brass for the picking up.

...a 9-m/m and .380? I don't believe that's ever been offered by anyone before, nor do I think that there'll be an awful lot of interest but, that said, you gotta think that the thing would be fun. Sorta for th' gun guy that's got almost everything....

i had experience with the first generation Bulldog and have had my 4th gen for 8 months, Love that gun, I'm wearing it right now as a matter of fact.

I have never been a fan of auto cartridges in DA revolvers, It adds a layer of complication that I carry revolvers to get away from

Now if someone would "legitimize" the .41 special, that would be a heck of a round for the Charter. IMO

The is the only reason I would want one. And I have a Sigma for that. I'm far more interested in the retro Bulldog remake if it ever comes out.

The 40 S&W is a decent SD caliber so it makes sense to chamber it in a revolver.

No argument there, it's just that I find it odd to drop the use of moon clips. That's one of the high points of auto ammo in a revolver in my view. If JM's use of the 625 doesn't advertize that fact then I don't know what would. So they made a revolver that uses a decent respectable defense ammo, but no speed loaders and no moon clips... Hmmm... Limiting? Or am I still missing the point?

That is exactly my question. without a speed loader option or moon clips it's just a hair above a single action

I've owned 3 Charter arms 22 , 38 and 44 and I had minor problems with all 3 them . In my opinon the S&W j frame is a far better gun .

+1

Had two and both gave problems. The internal parts are cheap and flimsy. I would not bet my life on one if I had a choice.

I have only had one Bulldog with one small problem the factory took care of with very speedy service.
Has been trouble free ever since then, about 2,000rds.
