On deer sized game, using the proper bullets, I think it's a toss up. On game the size of Elk and Moose, I'd stick with the .44mag. .44 can be downloaded to comfortable levels, but will never be the same as low recoil .357. If you buy bullets, especially jacketed, it is cheaper to reload for the .357 as it is to reload for the .44. Figure 3-8 cents a bullet difference in jacketed. Powder needed for hunting type loads will require about a third more for .44 than for .357. In other words, with most powders you could load 4 .357s for every 3 .44s. This is my opinion based on my experience of reloading and shooting both .357 mag and .44 mag in revolvers and carbines.
