A .454 ball will be a good starting point because most replica .44 caliber revolvers will have chambers ranging .445 - .451 diameter & will take that ball nicely with a ring of lead shaved off for a good seal, some with the smaller chambers will accept the .451 ball & seal nicely but I also have a older 3rd. Model Dragoon that has .453 chambers & require the .457 ball to make a good seal "kinda why I've stuck with the .457 ball mold for so long" but to be honest since you have the revolver there with you, you will have to find out which size it'll take best.

Good luck & safe FUN shooting.
