44 Tracker porting and lead bulltes

I am looking at the 4" Tracker 44 Mag, and was wondering if there are many problems with lead bullets. I load my own, and was only looking for 44 special velocities. It looks like with no rifling at the expansion port, no lead would be shaved, and accuracy should still be good. Any other lead shooters?
I also was looking at the 441 44 special, but then I would have to buy a bunch of brass, but no porting, and the 441 has the long cylinder. (If I could find a decent used one). I am kind of reluctant to buy a used gun on the net, especially a revolver.
I think the stainless 44 Tracker is probably the way to go. A modern "44 special", and save the heavy stuff for my SuperRedhawk.

I'd go for it, I think your assesment of the Tracker about using light loads is a good one. I view it as a heavy duty .44 Special that is capable of using magnums now & then. Frank
