I acquired a .44 mag somewhat unexpectedly from an uncle a few months ago and I have everything I need to reload except for some cases. I can’t find any new ammo anywhere, of course, and I can’t find any cases.
I ordered some Starline .223 brass a couple of weeks ago when they were showing it on backorder and received it in about ten days. They're showing .44 Special available on backorder right now...could be a viable opportunity.
Personally, I'd hold out for .44 Magnum brass, but ypu could make do with the .44 Special.

I've seen new bags of Winchester 44 mag brass at a couple of Fleet Farm stores around Minneapolis/St Paul since this past New Years as well as before. I picked up two bags for a brother in law just before Christmas. I don't recall the price but I thought it expensive but then everything shooting related is expensive these days.
According to the CS rep at Starline, future production date of currently back ordered brass - is any one's guess. I've had QTY #500 .480 Ruger brass back ordered since May 2021. Just prior to that, I backordered QTY #500 .45 Colt brass, & it showed up a couple of weeks later. Go figure...

I just ordered 1000 starline 44 mag the other day along with 1000 10mm. Both said they were backordered but I got FedEx tracking from them 2 days later that something shipped. I don't know if it was 1 or both but I'll know Friday.
