why a 41 over a 44?
That's like asking why a 308 vs 30-06 or 270 vs 280, because we can.
I have been shooting and handloading the 41 for about 12 years because in the same weight/barrel length gun the 44 hurts and the 41 does not,
and it will kill anything I am likely to hunt, that's why I like it. I'm still looking for a Marlin 1894 in 41 Mag to go with my two pistols.
The advantage of the 44 is the 44 spl, alas there was never a commercial 41 special, that certainly would have given the 41 a shot in the arm.
I load 41 spl (215 swc @ 1000 fps) class rounds for plinking and introducing others to the 41 mag
