People are quick to say that the .41 sits between the .357 and .44 magnum in power, but that just isn't true. Hornaday's factory 210xtp load generates a little more than 100 foot pounds of kinetic energy more than their factory 240 grain .44 magnum load. The same is true of Remington's loadings. While I will admit that the .44 has more pure power potential when you get into heavier bullets, the .41 is right there with until you get above about 250 grain projectiles. In a world without big bears (Texas) I feel like there isn't anything anybody can do with a .44 that can't be done with the .41.
