Literally, Nobody Uses .41AE Anymore

This is my impression. Until I fell into a box of it, I had never heard of the caliber....apparently, nobody else has either as I have found zero interest in it.

From what I gather it was a late '80's caliber.

You think all the .41's have been rechambered?

Pretty much the only thing that shoots it is the Desert Eagle. And i'm not even sure they make them new in that chambering anymore either.

It was killed by the .40S&W (as I understand it).

Yep, once the 40 hit town, no one makes a 41ae anymore. If you have one, you have to reload & the bullets are not easy to find as they are 41cal if I remember right.

That is my disappointment. I have been looking to sell a box for over a week. There has been zero interest...all over the net. Ok fine...hardly anyone wants it...I understand that, but you would figure there would be somebody in the the wide world to have some interest at least.

I guess I will put it with my vintage shotgun shells and forget.

Sierra makes a 170 gr. JHC that should work ok.

lots of 41 cal bullets out there, for the 41 mag. not super popular but it sure has a larger following than 41AE

Yes, I shoot a 41mag, but most of those bullets would not be suitable in the 41ae. That & the advent of the 40 killed it. That's how it goes though.
I put together a SMolt back in the day. I wanted a heavy lug 357mag but am not a huge Python fan. Then about 3yrs later, S&W comes out w/ their M686. So while the 41ae was a good idea, it wasn't supported & S&W came along & made it a bit better.

Find someone with a desert eagle with a 41 chamber.

It was an answer in search of a question. Orphan caliber.
