    Yup, the specials are shorter then the mags. Same diameter though.

    I wonder what kind of revolvers Doc Holliday and the Earps used in the 1800's?

    .36, .44, .45 caliber in hand guns. And yes, the .44 special will shoot in the .44 magnum. Both bullets are the same diameter, the 44 magnums are longer, so you can get more powder in them, and the longer case won't fit in the .44 speical revolvers. Just like .38, and .357 magnum.
