For a good many years a pair of 41's were my only centerfire revolvers. One 6.5 inch Blackhawk and the other a 4 inch S&W 57. Man, I regret trading off that 57. My current 41 is a Ruger Bisley. All have been accurate and easy to load for.
My first several years in Alaska, the 6.5" BH was my only centerfire revolver and I carried it everywhere. I kept it stoked with 280 grain WLN bullets from an LBT mold cast of 50/50 WW/lino. I've never felt under gunned with a 41 magnum.

I`ve found the 41 mag is a better cartridge cartridge for the strength of the S&W N frame then the 44....
