Too much sabot to handle the pressure. They'll work on lighter loads but you'll start blowing sabots when you turn the load up.

Typically the .44 cal bullets are .429. It takes a thick sabot to make the fit. This leaves to much room for the bullet to move around inside the sabot leading to less than ideal accuracy.Thats why I always strongly suggest using the .458 dia bulllets as that is as close as you are going to get bore dia. size wise.
