not sure on exact prices , but i can guarantee the .44s are fairly expensive, my .45 colt is right around 50 bucks a box for plain jane lead balls. Plus with the .357 you can shoot .38s and theyre cheap

What are you planning to use the gun for? If you plan to hunt deer with it, I'd overlook the price difference and just get the 44. If you are just buying a revolver for S's&G's, then you can save a few bucks with a 357. I own both, and would never take my 357 hunting over my 44. JMO.
What? I don't pay anywhere near 50.00 a box for Hornady Lever evolution rounds for hunting for my .45 colt ammo and cowboy ammo that I use for practice is not even 20.00 a box. Buffalo Bore ammo for a .45 doesn't even cost 50.00 a box and they are expensive. I think you need to fid a new ammo provider.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
Easy to reload, just an extra step in flaring the case mouth to accept the bullet. That's with all straight walled cases. I reload for my SBH 44 mag and its much cheaper than factory ammo once you get into it.
Last time I bought (and it will be the last time since my 1894 wont group them) leverevolutions they where $24-28 a box of 20rounds. My SRG and my 1894 both really like the Winchester soft point rounds. Bought a box at Wally world the weekend before bear (I'am the kinda guy that just feels better with more ammo) paid $40-42 a box for 50 rounds.
