Loading 44Mag on Dillon SDB

I have been reloading 9mm and 38spl on a Dillon Square Deal B for almost 5 years and love the machine. I have recently acquired a Ruger Super Redhawk 44 Mag and would like to begin reloading accurate hunting rounds. Is the SDB capable of producing accurate hunting rounds? I have heard that the space between the shell holder and the dies is tight when reloading 44 Mag. Does anyone have any experience with this? I would rather not have to purchase another reloader.

Thanks in advance for all your help!!!

My only caution with this is if you're using faster powders, like Unique or Universal Clays, or 231 and if you're not really careful, you can load a double charge.

Don't allow distractions, and if you have to stop during the cycle, take ALL of the "in process" rounds off the press.
