The 44s powder capacity is the limiting issue here. The advice above is good advice. AA-1680 works best with heavy 44 bullets, you will likely want to upgrade to 300+ grain loads. (If they work in youre rifle) AA-1680 can be had for very cheap from surplus powder dealers. The only downside is that you might sacrifice velocity in a revolver. I would try AA-1680 and see what you get out of youre gun. As a plus, the slow burn rate means that you may be able to use lead bullets at higher velocity. (Carefull for leading.) From what I understand, AA-1680 performs very well when moderately compressed. (Like Blue Dot) Be carefull not to compress the powder too much though. That part is more of an art than a science.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.
