    Call BA and ask is my advice. Let them know what you are shooting, they will be curious.

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!

    In mine cut down 44-40 is a better fit than 44Sp. Perhaps they swage out the base diameter slightly? Rims need to be thinned too.
    I would have to check the necks or bullet shank diameter.
