When .41 Magnum hit the shelves in 1964, it was designed to offer more knockdown power than the .357 Magnum, with less recoil than the big-bore .44 Magnum. While the straight-wall cartridge never reached the same widespread adoption as its siblings, the .41 Magnum is not to be overlooked. Out of a carbine length barrel, modern 170-grain projectiles leave the muzzle at over 1600 feet per second. In a lever action rifle, the cartridge shines as a capable deer-hunting round with proper shot placement, as well as a handy companion to a .41 Mag revolver. For those with a discerning taste in cartridges, the often overlooked .41 Mag in a Henry Big Boy Carbine could be your new go-to.
