Seen on in 357 Mag and decided I had to have one in .44 to back up my Super Redhawk. Seems like it will make a great walking around rifle.

I'd think it'd be great for that,,,,,, :bigtup:

As hard as it hits, there's not much out there it won't flatten real quick.

Looks nice.
I used to carry a Rossi .44mag lever action carbine when on horseback patrol. I put down some elk with it. Not my first choice, but it did the job.

Well great news. The Ohio Legislature finally listened to hunters. Starting in 2015 Deer hunters in Ohio can use rifles chambered for straight walled pistol calibers. 357/41/44/480 Ruger and 500 S&W. If using a handgun it too must be a straight walled caliber and the pistol must have a minimum 5" barrel.

Great!
When you look at all the game taken with the .44-40, up to and including buffalo and grizzlies, you won't be undergunned with a .357 or a .44 mag.
Here in NM, the squirrel season ran concurrent with elk season. I used to carry some light .44spl lead roundnose rounds with me. I could head shoot a couple of squirrels for the camp frypan! After a week or so on horseback patrol, a little fresh meat sure tasted good!
