.44 Magnum vs .44 Bulldog
 
What's the difference between the .44 Magnum & .44 Bulldog recoil?

I thought the bulldog was a Charter Arms revolver.

The bulldog is a revolver built by Charter Arms. Its chambered in .44 special or .357 magnum

When I had my .44 Sp.l Charter Bulldog It was a fun shooting revolver and I enjoyed it a lot, but I don't know if I trust the new charters. Not as much recoil as the .44Mag but a good stopper on par with the .45 auto.

The Charter Bull Dog .44 Special would be like a pat on the hand. The .44 Magnum full house 300 grs. loads is like smashing your hand with a claw hammer. ;):D

Yeah, there's a noticeable recoil difference.

Charter Bulldog revolvers are chambered for .44 Special and does NOT fire .44 Magnum. Most shooters like the lighter load in the small, lightweight revolver and its plenty for self-defense. You could purchase a snubby on .44 Magnum by several manufacturers, and anything chambered in .44 Magnum will fire both cartridges, .44 Magnum and .44 Special, so you can decide which you like better. Just be careful, as Magnum revolvers are typically heavier to carry.

Like comparing a 38sp to a 357mag if you understand those two.

Wiki them and study the differences

Recoil is an odd phenomenon. Depending on the design of the gun, grips, and ammunition. A hot loaded .44 Special in a light revolver, such as the Bulldog, with rubber grips, will beat you hand to a pulp after a box of cartridges. At the same time, a .44 Magnum, with moderate loads, in a heavy magnum revolver, with well made wood or ivory grips, is a pleasant afternoon of shooting.

Even put the Magnum stuff in a Ruger Super Blackhawk and even the heavy .45 Colt loads are pleasant shooting.

It all depends on how sensitive the shooter is to recoil, the gun and the ammunition.
