The .44 Mag is probably the most versatile revolver on the market. I know I'm gonna get flamed for that but think about it. You can shoot mild .44 specials for plinking. Full house 300 grainers for anything on earth. Elephants have been taken with a .44 mag. The .41 may have its followers but it fails in comparison to a .44.
.44 mag recoil is not that bad either
