What Jim said. My .357 Montado (which is mostly just a short barreled New Vaquero) is a surprising tank, and I would have no qualms whatsoever converting my 5.5" to a .41 Magnum. "Wallyworld" ammo availability aside, there are good arguments to be made if you could only have one single action to cover virtually all anticipated needs south of the 40th-or-so parallel, a midframe .41M might be it. Have actually contemplated it, but already owning a .44 Mag Vaquero instead am looking to make a .38-40/.40/10mm convertible out of it "just because."
