210 gr. Rem. HP over 20.5 gr. WW296 is absolute death on deer and groundhogs and super accurate in my Raging Bull .41.

I am with the other fine upstanding gents-- 22 gr of H110/296 has nearly always shot 210 -225 or so very well
took my first handgun deer with Lyman Keith and 20 gr of h110 for heavier 255 gr 18 gr of h110 as to primers sometimes I use cci 300 or Fed 150 because they are shiney -- normally WWLP

I'm fairly new to the 41 mag craze and only have one notch on it.



I was trying out the Barnes 180 XPB with 23 gr of H110. It is superbly accurate and performed very well on this whitetail. I shot it facing me - bullet entered just above the brisket and was recovered in the rear of his stomach.

One heck of a "notch" there, Kim!

Nice hog as well, James.

I had a .41 Bisley Hunter once upon a time and it shot well, but the scope on the barrel didn't work for me so on down the road it went.
