To the op, I assume you don’t reload, find a friend who does, buy both of you components and a set of .44mag dies and over a few hours the two of you could build a couple hundred rounds every so often. His equipment, your components, you do the work under his supervision. I load very nice shooting lead bullet .44-40 loads. No reason you couldn’t load the equivalent in a .44 spcl case. My 625 45acp is plenty for me. The only really hot stuff I’ve ever messed with was when I was shooting bowling pin matches, a .45colt with 290 gr lead out of a .45 Anaconda. You might try some .44 cowboy action ammo too.
