I bought a new 1894 in 44 mag about 9 months ago, ballard rifling and 1:38 twist rate. Changed the barrel out to a 45 Colt with Micro Groove rifling and a 1:20 twist rate. Couldn't be happier.. ;D

So these ballard cut barrels should be good to go with cast 200grn and 240grn RNFP bullets?
Mine did, but you should really slug the barrel and then go .002 oversize. I ended up using .432 when mine was a 44 mag.
