The .38-44 cartridge WAS a .38 Special. Same case, same bullet, same dimensions, just loaded to higher pressure and velocity.

Same way a .38 Special +P or a +P+ are .38 Specials. Just more powerful versions.

The fun thing about cartridges is that the exact same cartridge can often have multiple valid names.
