Would this ideal cartridge be a .38-40?

As I recall, the first modern auto pistol round, the name of which I forget (and which most other people don't remember either), was created with bullets intended for the .38-40. Was this the .41 Action Express?

At one time, both the .38-40 and the .44-40, originally introduced for rifles, were available in so-called high speed loadings, presumably not intended for revolvers. Somewhere out there in radio land are statistics for these loads no doubt.
