Every once in awhile I think about acquiring a .44-40 Revolver, but the urge goes away as soon as I think about reloading it. I know it isn't hard, but it isn't a straight-walled case either. So I believe you would have to lube to resize just like the bottleneck rifle cases. This is something I don't do for .45 Colt or .44 Special.... So seems like 'more work' . But I suppose, bring out the .44-40 for the 'occasional' black powder shooting session, it wouldn't be to bad. So maybe I'll end up with one yet.

Single Action .45 Colt (Sometimes colloquially referred to by its alias as the .45 'Long' Colt or .45LC). Don't leave home without it. That said, the .44Spec is right up their too... but the .45 Colt is still the king.
