I wouldn't sell the .41 Magnum short on versatility.

I've seen bullets as light as 150 grains and as heavy as 300 grains. That's a pretty darned good spread.

If you need power occasionally, go for the .41 Magnum. At full magnum loads it really loses nothing to the .44 Mag.

If you want to just plink, consider the .44 Special. Very mild mannered, and with Trail Boss powder it can be fantastically accurate.
