Believe me, I thought about it.
Problem is, I don't know enough about the 44s and I don't know enough about the differences between the "first company" issue (early 1980s on back I think?) and the most recent company.
Regarding the 44s, I know a bit about the ballistics issues but not about any strength differences between first-run and current-run.
Soo...rather than put out bad info, I held off.
