When reloading .357 and .44 will regular large pistol primers suffice or do I need to get some magnum primers.

Your reloading manual will usually tell you which to use but if you are loading heavy charges of H110 or 296 (both are the same powder) then a magnum primer is recommended. If you are using a mid range load of a faster powder then standard primers are almost always recommended. Many of us use 2400 in both calibers & use standard primers while a few will use a magnum primer but that just rises pressures & a magnum primer isn't necessary. Pick your poison, switching from standard primers to magnum primers will increase pressures with the same powder charge.

And they're all I use for cases that require large pistol primer.
