I've seen this happen with a new handgun that had really sharp edges on the lands.

No I'm using just one kind of ammo for now, the barrel does have some pretty sharp edges.
Anyway I'm positive it's copper fouling, I'm confident that I'll be able to clean it off with Montana X-Treme and a little bit of scrubbing. Thanks guys!

Sounds like you are on the right track. The bullets you are shooting are not up setting with the load you are currently using. I would look at powder options such as W296 and H110 same powder different cans but great choice in the .44 Mag. My concern is the build up of copper in your forcing cone. Make sure you clean that area well with a brush. I would follow up with JB Non embedding bore cleaner to smooth the bore.

Already had some JB followed by JB bright. The forcing cone is surprisingly pristine looking, it's the last inch near the muzzle that is really dirty.
