Maybe it'd be different with a big .44 slug, but I doubt you could count on breaking bones or knocking him off his feet. If it doesn't penetrate, it may leave a bruise, but I wouldn't expect much more than that.
A rifle cartridge is still more powerful than a .44 mag. A rifle is a rifle and a pistol is a pistol regardless of whether you chamber the .44mag in a rifle it's still a pistol cartridge. 30-30 is more powerful than a .44mag in a rifle.
