Elmer Keith and Bill Jordan are attributed to creating the .41 Remington Magnum in 1963, when they petitioned three of the biggest ammo makers of the time; Smith and Wesson, Remington, and Norma. Their desire was to produce a pistol round that used a .41 caliber projectile that fell between the .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum in terms of ballistics, while addressing what some called the short comings of those rounds. Elmer wanted more power than the .357 and less recoil than the .44.
Skeeter Skelton, the Texas Border Patrol Agent and famous handgun writer, felt that as a cartridge for law enforcement the .41 Mag. was just right. He had a good point, indicating that the .41 Mag. gave better terminal performance than the .357 Mag., but significantly less recoil than the .44 Mag.
While the popularity of the .41 Rem Mag left much to be desired in the 1960s, today there are many more choices than there were in Elmer’s day. They range anywhere from a 210-grain from Federal’s Vital-Shok line to Winchester’s 175-grain hollow point. In fact, Grizzly even loads a 265-grain Wide Nose Gas Check cast pullet that is capable of reaching 1,400 feet per second. This round is sure to make any hunter’s day considerably better.
While it might live in the shadow of the .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum, there is still a place in many shooter’s heart for the .41 Rem Mag. Perhaps one day the popularity will reach a point deserving of such an excellent round.
