The thin neck on the 44-40 will expand to seal off the action from blowby as Crunchy mentioned. The .45 will have blowby. Also you can leave a fired 44-40 case in the chamber when you clean the bore and it will keep crud out of the action. You wont have to tear the action down to clean it with the 44-40, you will with the .45. Reloading the 44-40 is a learning curve tho.
