In short answer to the .45ACP VS .44 Rem Mag question:
The .45 is marginally wider, but the cartridge lacks the massive
power of the slightly narrower, but same weight .44 bullet.
I have to agree you've progressed to the point where a good
reloading manual will be a great help to you.
Hornady or Speer's 8th Edition, Lyman's or Lee are all a
literal fountain of knowledge to the average gun-owner,
regardless of whether you ever reload ammo. IMO,
any one is 35$ well spent.
