Yes it will be substantially different since the m44 is a muuuuuch shorter barrel. Difference is between 100-200 fps per inch rough average guesstimate depending on powder burn rate being used
Remember the mosin is designed for 311 bullets but some get good accuracy with 308. Its worth trying since you can sing hallelujah if your lucky and get one with a tighter bore. More bullet options open to you.
None of my four shoot 308 well at all. Not 308 nato just the 308 bullets in 7.62x54r cases.
