If you want an good economical 44 magnum round you'll need to start reloading.

Reloading is a lot of fun. As mentioned, just start slow and work up, avoid distractions and pay attention to what you are doing. You only published reloading data, if you stay within those specs there is no increased danger at all. If you have any questions, stop and ask.

Reloading for magnum handguns is my personal favorite....i enjoy it more then my shotguns, rifles and target rounds.
If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...

AFAIK, accidentally "double charging" a round with powder.

Many of us avoid this by immediately pressing the bullet

as soon as the cartridge is charged with powder.

It slows down the process, but enhances the safety

No real danger. As said by others just take your time and be careful (read a couple of reloading books). There are so many different bullets and powder out there you can find something to use for any situation. For an inexpensive pistol load (paper punching) I use Bullseye powder with coated lead bullets (Spear) and keep the FPS below 1000. If you start reloading you'll find yourself shooting a-lot more!

Default The ONLY dangerous part in reloading

Is not paying attention.

One must pay attention, but other than that, it's just reading and following directions.

It's about as dangerous as driving on the freeway and for the same reasons.
