It is... Interestingly painful with full power 454 loads. Mine pushes a 335 gr Cast Performance at 1078 fps and a 360 gr CP at 1060 fps. It does hurt my wrist but I got it for fishing Alaska.
With heavy 45 "Ruger only" 45 Colt loads it isn't too bad so the 44 should be manageable.
44 special bullet weights/velocities should be a pleasure to shoot just like my light 45 Colt loads.
I rarely shoot the full power 454 loads. I have some fairly light kicking 45 Colt loads that hit the same POA at 15 yds. Those are the practice loads.
