.44-40 question

I just bought a SAA copy chambered for .44-40, and am really looking forward to test-firing it. But i've run across a wee temporary problem.

When i bought it there was only two boxes of Winchester 200 grs Jacketed SP loads available (not exactly every day stuff this caliber) and the boxes are marked Express Rifle on the box. It raised some doubt in my mind wether this would be loaded to a safe velocity for use in a revolver, or if this is hot rifle loads. Anyone got any experience with these loads?

It ain't the greatest problem, i can wait for bullets and brass to arrive so i can load my own (allready have a die set), but it would be nice to know if i'm going to blow my fingers off (or atleast the top-strap) if the wait becomes to long.
