I forgot to add the .454 Casull and the .460 S&W Mag. to my post earlier. The .44 mag is the largest cartridge of that bullet diameter (.429), that I see in production without wildcatting, and the diameter steps up from there (.44 Colt being the largest at .443), The closer one to match would be in .45 caliber, and power wise, the .454 Casull, which is a daemon. However, the .460 S&W Magnum, which is really .454, is even more powerful.

.44 Rem. Mag.: 340 gr (22 g) LFN +P+, 1,325 ft/s, 1,533 ft·lbf

.454 Casull: 335 gr (22 g) WFNGC HC, 1,600 ft/s, 1,904 ft·lbf (Closest match)

.460 S&W Mag.: 360 gr (23 g) LLFN, 1,900 ft/s, 2,885 ft·lbf
