It's doable if you're creative.
I load on a 550 & 650, but still use my ss press a lot. If I want to put together 50rds of 44mag, I don't tear down my 550 for that, just use the ss press.
My point was if it was the only gun I had, it would be worth buiying a ss kit to reload for it. Factory 44mags are quite expensive. Most 44mag shooters don't shoot them more than 100rds a week. You do NOT need a progressive for that volume.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
