Actually, a flat-point bullet WAS a common loading in the .44 Henry, at least in the early days of the cartridge.

See here for one early example:

This is an example of a box of loaded rounds from probably from the very late 1880s or early 1890s, just after UMC purchased Remington:

Here's a beautiful example of a pre-1887 box of UMC cartridges for the .44 Henry.

And, finally, another example of a Winchester-loaded flat-nose bullet:

Judging by the headstamp, that one is probably from the middle 1870s.
