      While I'm convalescing my wife won't let me do anything meaningful.  So, if y'all will indulge my posts here abouts, a few cartridges:
      These are some variations of old .45 caliber rounds, all commercial:
      The notes below are the headstamps of the rounds.  The nickeled case round is from one of the first boxes of ammunition I bought many years ago for my Colt New Service.
      Some .44s:

      The .44 Remington is unmarked, but the case is Remington, but I believe the round is a reproduction.
      And, sort of the progression from .44 R.F. to .44 Magnum:

      I believe the .44 S&W is in reality just a centerfire Henry.  The first Smith & Wesson No.3 submitted to the Army was rimfire, and the Army returned it wanting a centerfire.  According to what I have read, it the gun was simply changed to centerfire without changing the chamber dimensions.
      Early cartridges loaded for the US Army:

      Thanks for looking.

      Fair deal on range ammo + free shipping on 20 boxes. I've shot quite a bit of this and never had a problem

      My RCBS seating dies use the same seating stem for .44 Special, .44 Magnum, and .45 Colt, so I keep the seating stems separate in a wooden box.  (I have this affinity for wooden boxes) 
      My die is already set for crimping, so in order to get the correct seating depth, I made up some inert rounds:

      I then run the correct dummy round up into the die, then insert the seating stem until it contacts the bullet nose.
      And, just for a newbie to show off, my shell holder box:
