.41 Remington Magnum

Hey out there! I just wanted to start a talk about the .41 Remington Magnum. I've got a Marlin 1894 Cowboy Carbine Limited and a Ruger Blackhawk chambered in it, and I live and die by these guns. Reload and cast bullets for it too. Most people either love it or hate it, just want to hear some opinions.

Re: .41 Remington Magnum

got a S & W 657 in it for my son. I reload for it. Great cartridge, all that the 44 mag handgun promised and without the muzzle rise.

We've used it for hogs and deer, no problems.

Re: .41 Remington Magnum

Had a Ruger Blackhawk in 41 for years...Ended up selling it to a friend and regret it....I like it because it has most of the power of a 44 magnum in a smaller package.

Re: .41 Remington Magnum

They're a blast to shoot, but gosh factory rounds are expensive, $65.00 for a box of fifty at the shop by me. I've gotta reload. Plus, I can get much better accuracy when I tune down my rounds to ~850fps. Not enough guts for hunting, but still makes a day at the range more fun.

+1 on the S&W 657 - very nice trigger and I don't have to deal with the jump of the 44. Too bad the factory ammo has to be so expensive - going to have to start reloading for it soon.

Find the time.....

I have a 657 with 8-3/8 inch barrel. I am still trying to get a shot at a deer with it.

Only the pentitent man will pass.

Re: .41 Remington Magnum

Great caliber ya got there Tony.I love my 44's bought for the last year have been shooting my Blackhawk in 41 magnum.A matter of fact,i think so much of that 41 that i bought a Freedom Arms model 97 in a 41.One beautiful revolver.Personally i believe it is more accurate than a 357 or 44.If you want to hear someone rave about the 41 contact the owner of Penn Bullets.He makes some great cast truncated bullets for the 41,210 grs.Welcome to the CULT.

Re: .41 Remington Magnum

One of the guys I hunt with had a Ruger Blackhawk in 41 mag and took more deer with that than I can ever remember. Unfortunately it was stolen from his house. He was one heck of a shot with that thing, and it was impressive how fast it would put a deer down.

Re: .41 Remington Magnum

I like the 41 magnum. The 44 magnum, and the 45 Colt. All three are great cartridges. I think the 41 was left behind. But there was no real reason for it to be left behind.

I believe the cartrdige was developed with the Police in mind. They were wantnig a slightly larger magnum than the 357, but with a little less recoil than the 44 magnum. But I believe they found out the 357 was pretty close. Then because of bad timing with the advent of semi-auto pistols both the 357 and 41 fell off the Law Enforcement map(sort of speak).

The 41 is every bit as effective as it two slightly larger brothers. Only hang up is ammunition choices. If you reload then that is not an issue. But if you are dependent on factory fodder then the 44 magnum is probably a better choice.

Good luck with your 41 magnum. I have had a couple. One was a Desert Eagle. And man it was a shooter!!

That Marlin will also be a real dandy!! Tom.
