:sofa: 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 !

Thanks, Chuck

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.

I wish I had the 41 Mag I had back in the '70's.  S&W M57, 8 3/8" barrel, nickel.  I didn't reload back then and always used factory ammo.  Boy, was that one sweet shooting gun and cartridge. 

Once you decide on which bullet and powder you'll try, if you need powder charge data let us know.  There's a whole lot of reloading manuals floating around here.  
:thumbs:
