There's a little more to it than that.
The M44 being carbine length, is a great truck gun, or wonderful
for facing down wild boar, as you have your close-in defense bolted
Also, firing the same caliber, 7.62 x 54R the muzzle blast, report, and recoil
are more like a magnum than a 30.06. Many parts,(stock and bayonet,
and barrel excluded) are interchangeable.
Mostly, there's a big fun factor involved. YMMV
