    Russian 44

    What's the difference between the .44 Russian and the .44 special cartridges?

    The biggest differences are that the .44 Russian is .190" shorter than the Special, and was a black powder cartridge.

    The .44 Russian is a shorter case than the special. You can fire a Russian in a Special, but not the other way around.

    Thank you for the answers. Been seeing some older re-runs of Hoby Gillman on Trackdown lately. No black powder smoke there, but they can do anything in the movies.
