This is what I do for 45 Colt, which is essentially no different from 44 Magnum: All new and once-fired brass gets trimmed to consistent length, one time, and never again. In my tight-chambered Vaquero, they just don't grow in length. For conventional seater-crimper dies, you really do need to have consistent case length to get a consistent crimp. That being said, there are some other crimp-only dies that are worth having, where case length is less critical.
