The big disappointment of the .44 is the heavy recoil.
Too bad Remington boosted the velocity 200 fps beyond Elmer Keith's recommendation.
This is easily modified by handloaders. I don't think I've ever heard anyone complain that available ammunition is too powerful, especially when you have the .44 special option also available. If that's too expensive, then you're going to have a problem shooting the .41 mag anyway.
