    I think that round is a little lite in my opinion.

    I get mad at the wife all the time because she will ruin a butter knife using it as a screw driver, rather than taking the time to get a screw driver (and returning it when she is done). Use the proper tool for the proper job.
    Upon a little further research, even Elmer Keith swore off the 44 SPCL when the 44 Mag came out.

    But . . . . . ., and a HUGE but at that, he eventually concluded that the 44 Mag was too much for day-to-day and he switched back to the 44 SPCL. Also, the 44 SPCL will fire the 44 Russian and 44 Colt (modern version of 44-40). So, the hunt is back on for a 44 SPCL and Charter Arms is leading the search pack now. They entered the 44 SPCL market in the ‘60s and remain one of the leaders in that caliber on the market.

    If it was a 327 Fed .. It would be a 6 shot ... Remember the Charter Patriot .. 6 shot 327 Fed ....

    And the Charter Professional frame is the same size as a Colt D frame ...

    S&W does have a 7 shot 357 ... But it is a S&W L size frame ( big difference) compared to the Charter Bulldog frame ..

    That's not much to sacrifice for nearly double the energy on target.

    My guess would be that to handle the pressure of the .327 would have required a larger cylinder than they wanted, which would in turn have pushed a larger and heavier frame or restricted capacity.

    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    Maybe the 327 set up could be squeezed in the Charter XL frame (45acp,45 colt & 41 mag) But a 6 shot 357mag on the XL frame & a
    4 inch barrel ,would be my pick .....

    You could make a gold inlayed, engraved, all titanium, ported 44 magnum, in a pocket sized package, two inch barrel, gold inlayed hand carved
    grips made of 200 year old walnut.

    If you called it the "Sunflower Honey bee" you would sell any.

    "Professional" is a better sales word.

    It's like the F-15 "Strike Eagle". Name it the "Hummingbird Zoomer" and it isn't
    going to sell.

    At least they didn't use the adjectives "Tactical" or "Operator" to describe it!

    The first makes me think of sidewalk commandos, the second of Lily Tomlin doing her one ringing-dingy skit on Laugh In.

    If I can get these to Charters to mate ... We would have what you are looking for ;-)

    Or buy a new S&W with a 20lb trigger and a canted barrel
