Hey fellers, I'm a newbie. Don't know how many of you read my intro but I'm hoping to get back into reloading before the summers out.
I like to carry a Blackhawk .41 mag with a 6 1/2" naked barrel for whitetails on the doe days. Makes for a real challenging hunt. I got the press and die and all but where should I start with bullets, primers and powder? Any ideas and suggestions appreciated !
Hi there wttail, I don't load for 41Mag, but it's so close to 44Mag I figure I'll throw in my two cents. I like W296 a lot. Gives good accuracy, velocity and flows through a powder measure real well. I've been using Fed 155 magnum primers with this powder and they work great together. As far as bullets go I like the Hornady XTP's. I checked the Midway website and the 41 Caliber 210gr XTP has some good reviews for use when deer hunting. A few companies make heavier cast bullets, but I haven't tried them.
BIG thanks guys......I actually have 1/2 can of the W296 my daddy in law told me about probably 10-12 years ago. Its been in storage so I guess I should get a fresh can and I'll check out the other stuff to! Thanks again
