Originally envisaged as a law enforcement and hunting cartridge, the .41 Remington Magnum faced mixed reviews from the LE community following its 1964 introduction. But handgun hunters found that the .41 Mag. offered energy levels and trajectories comparable to the .44 Mag. without the latter’s stout recoil and attendant muzzle blast. The underappreciated cartridge fills a niche between the .357 Mag. and .44 Mag. and, when using the recipe below, is capable of taking all non-dangerous game at reasonable ranges.
