On paper, it looks like a fabulous round, but never seemed to hit its stride in the free market.

Is this round dying? Resurgent? Or going to stay steady as a semi boutique round, staying in a hover, just over 44mag prices?

I sure hope it's here to stay. I still want a S&W model 57 to accompany my Black Hawk in .41 Mag.

I don’t think it’s dying…it’s been around for a long time.

Personally, I prefer it over .44 mag.

I’ve got two 657’s; a 7.5” Hunter and a 3” Performance Center…

But I really want a 58.

I have a Ruger Blackhawk in .41 Mag. 1971 vintage.

My Dad left it for me.

1. The .41 mag came into existence too late in the game, and didn't get Hollywood's support like the .44 mag did.
2. It's a rimmed, revolver-only caliber.
3. There's no .41 spcl (unless you're a Wildcatter).
4. The more popular as of late 10mm auto gets you almost there, in semi-auto or revolver platform, which is good enough for most.

Not unlike my 6mm Remington, it's an excellent caliber, but the .41 mag has no future, IMO.

No, the latest 10mm does NOT get you almost there…unless you think the latest .40 gets you “almost there” to 10mm.

10mm is the equivalent of .357 magnum, until you get over 200gr bullet weights, where options for the .357 dry up.

.41 mag smokes 10mm in both weight and velocity, when an honest comparison is made (not cherry picking weak .41 loads and the hottest 10mm loads).

And there is a .41 mag auto—the Desert Eagle.
