That entirely depends on the ammunition you load it with.
If you can find any factory .44 Special ammo, it will be very mild and the gun will hardly jump at all when it fires. Most .44 Special ammunition is fairly expensive, as it is designed for defense or other special uses. If you can find some Cowboy Action loads, they might be less expensive and fairly accurate, as they are intended for Cowboy Action shooting competitions.
Next level would be the 3/4 magnum; something like the Winchester Silvertip 210 grain JHP .44 Magnum self-defense load. It is about a 75%-80% load, so it can be more easily controlled in short-barreled revolvers often carried for defense. In a 9.5" SRH, it will cause some muzzle flip and recoil, but won't be too bad at all; less nasty than a full-power .357 in a light .357 revolver. This is an expensive load, and sometimes hard to find. It comes in 20-round boxes, and costs about $25-$30 a box.
If you can find CCI Blazer .44 magnum or American Eagle .44 magnum ammo (240 grain JHP), they are about 90% to 95% loads (1100-1200 FPS (Feet-Per-Second)). They cost about the same as the below full-power loads.
Full magnums come in several "flavors", with the most common one being a 240 grain Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP). These are available from many manufacturers, and are capable of taking deer and other medium/large game animals. The speed of these loads will be between 1300 and 1400 FPS. The recoil will be spirited, but should not hurt your hand unless you shoot a lot of them in one range session. Cost will be around $34-$45 per box of 50. You might also find 200 grain JHPs at 1400-1500 FPS, for about the same recoil and cost.
There a few hot-loaded 180 JHPs or JSPs (Jacketed Soft Points) on the market. They are very fast (probably 1650 - 1700+ FPS out of your gun), and will expand aggressively in anything soft and squishy, making it much softer and squishier. I've used them for deer hunting, and never had a deer run more than 20 yards after a good hit; most sat/fell down and died on the spot. If you shoot a watermelon with one at 25 yards, you'll be picking seeds out of your hair for the next few minutes. Recoil is a step up from the 240s, and your hand might start hurting if you shoot more than a 4-5 cylinder-fulls. Cost is about the same as the 240s. There are also a few lighter-loaded 180s out there; if it says 1400-1500 FPS on the box, it's not really full-power.
There are a few 250-270 grain hunting loads, designed for deeper penetration without objectionable recoil. They are expensive, and are usually sold 20-25 rounds to the box.
Heavy-bullet magnums are for hunting large or (potentially) dangerous game animals. These have hard-cast lead bullets that weight 290-320 grains, loaded over a maximum powder charge. They are designed to penetrate -- deeply. The 320 grain load I used when I went to Alaska would go through two 14" telephone poles, back-to-back. After six shots, I had a streak of black rubber on my palm from the grips. After two cylinder-fulls (12 shots), I was pretty much done for the day, lest I begin to close my eyes and/or jerk the trigger due to the recoil smack I knew was coming. They are also expensive, being semi-custom ammunition, and cannot be safely used in some guns due to pressure, recoil, or overall length (some revolver cylinders are actually too short for these locomotive-length bruisers).
Starting at about the 240 grain full-power loads, recoil is getting serious. If you hold the weapon with a weak grip, it may come back a little too fast and close for comfort. Grip the weapon with a very firm handshake-type grip, and it will jump upward when it fires, but should not get close your face/head. The full-power 180s are about the same.
The really heavy hunting loads may hurt you if you are sloppy with your technique. Bent elbows or a weak grip won't keep the weapon under control during recoil.
