I hung onto the 44 Special for a good long time, mostly out of respect for uncle Elmer. And if Elmer ran one of the ammo companies, the old Special would be up on its hind legs. Trouble is, it is--or was when I fooled with it--hard to find factory ammo that matched the ballistics of the even 45 ACP.
It is a dandy cartridge all the same and a real go-getter if you handload it.
