I own both calibers in several different revolvers..both types in S&W and Ruger...that said, I like them both, but for practical reasons, I'd pick the .44 for the ammunition availability alone. Aside from the current hysteria, you can find .44 loads from target velocities (in .44 Spl), all the way up to bear killing 300 gr loads. It's very versatile. The .41, conversely, is a hand loading proposition. Factory loads are limited, and expensive when you find them. Either caliber is more inherently accurate than any of us can hold...Rod
Our Flag does not fly because the wind blows against it, it is moved instead, by the dying breath of our patriots in uniform. Our Freedom is not free, it's been paid for many times over.
