Fair point about the 30-30, but it is more powerful than the 44 Mag, and I wouldn't use a 30-30 on purpose, so why would I think there was a qualitative difference between two lesser-powered cartridges?

This all reads like the old arguments, .45 ACP vs .357, then .45 and 9mm. I get that bears aren't human-sized, but I understand a lot of Alaskans have moved from revolvers to semi-autos, some to 10mm, some to .45 Super, and some to 9mm. Having grown up with revolvers, I can understand that - I'm much more accurate with a semi-auto than a revolver, and I get many more rounds, both to warn and to shoot-to-hit. My choice of bullets is the Lehigh Xtreme Penetrator. If I have enough time I'll buy a G29 10mm and install an Overwatch Precision Tac trigger. If I don't have enough time for that I'll carry the 9mm and not worry much about it. Whatever I carry, it won't be a revolver, as I sold the last .357 and .44 Mags 30 years ago.
