Well done. Thanks.I hope you fine folks will enjoy:
I seriously dislike your new handgun rules for I fear in the future we will make the same mistake.While I have shot 38/357's and 44's, I too chose the 41 Rem Mag.
Happy with it.
Plenty of power and better penetration than the 44 with 240 gr bullets (higher SD). Makes good sense for our larger game here.
Also have a Marlin lever action chambered to this cartridge, which I can use legally to hunt with, as we are restricted from hunting with handguns here north of the border.
If I were to have gone with a 38/357...I believe that the stainless Ruger GP100 with a 4.2" barrel (legal minimum barrel length here) would have gotten the nod. Nice handling/shooting revolvers!
Alas, our rules have changed, and we can no longer acquire new handguns
