Yes, you can shoot the .44 special in the .44 mag rifle. They'll do fine with regular pistol load data. However, most .44 Special loads are fairly anemic because they might be fired in extremely old firearms with spotty provenance. The .44 Special can be loaded hotter than factory ammo in guns of good maintenance and modern steel. I load my .44 Special with a 240 grain semi-wadcutter and 7.5 grains of Unique. That gives me 971 fps from my Super Blackhawk and is good for 95% of what I want a .44 to do.
