Howdy from SE Texas!!  Maybe it's the 'Big Circle' coming around complete for me; Im getting a big interest in CAS!  Now I can REALLY play 'cowboys'.  If I start to participate, I want to use 44s, as I'll probably use em hunting.  My thoughts are to get 2 SBHs, with 4 5/8" barrels...probably stainless.  Im thinking I'll get a Rossi R92 (blue) in 44 mag.  I already have a Rossi Overland (blue) double barrel (20 ga).  Im also getting into reloading, not just 44s, but 45 acp, 9mm, and 223/5.56.

I have a question, hopefully someone here will have the answer.  For pistol recoil purposes Im considering 44 special.  After reading some on the Rossi having loading issues with the 44 sp (case length), Im thinking about doing a 44 sp load using a Magnum case.  Not sure which bullets or powder I'd use....possible 200 or 240 gr, and Trail Boss (?). 

Any PRO / CON to this idea?  Would it even work?

It works for me. I load .44 Mag cases with a 240 gr RNFP & 5 gr of Red Dot - found the l recipe on Alliant's website. If you have the brass go ahead & load some .44 Specials, I ended up with a couple so tried it & my '92 feeds them fine. Can't promise you the same results, we've all heard that '92s are picky about cartridge length.
