Although the ability to shoot 44 Russian rounds in 44 Special firearms was pivotal to the 44 Special's early success, and although the 44 Special will chamber in 44 Rem Mag firearms, in general, the extra bullet jump distance compromises the accuracy of said combination.
Of note: it was with the 44 Special which Elmer Keith did his work (research) leading to the development and introduction of 44 Remington Magnum. The 44 Special is pressure rated at 14000 CUP.
