    Seeing that the powers to be have finally realized that there isn't much distance difference between a 357mag,41mag,44mag bullet leaving a pistol and a rifle the State of Indiana is going to allow rifles chambered in these rounds to be used during deer season.

    I'm looking for a good starting point for reloads. I will be using an older 1894 Marlin chambered in 41 Remington Mag. Some of you out there may have some suggestions, and I would sure like to here them.

    If you have need of good cast bullets for reloading/practice, give Ed at call at Midstates Cast Bullets. He has a good size line of cast bullet and is also an ammunition manufacturer and right now has some really good prices on .223 ammo that is absolutely first rate in quality and accuracy.

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm still trying to figure out what bullet weight I should use! I don't know if I should use 7 1/2's or 8's. Lol.

    OK ...I gots lotsa info...on a 41 that you are going to hunt with, try these...210Gr Speer GoldDot JHP over 21gr of H110 pretty accurate and the fastest at about 1750fps

    more accurate but slower is same bullet over 21.5-22 of IMR 4227..this load is around 1600fps
    ** you can substitute Noslers 210grain but the Speer GoldDotis a much tougher bullet if you want penetration and need to take angling shots that need to go through over 15" and bones are in the way

    the 170grain bullets are faster but dont hold together at close range because of how fast they are traveling

    Hope that helps

    Calvin thanks for the info. I'm looking for info that takes advantage of the 1894's increased barrel length and strong action.Is there anyone that has info for rifle loading this cartrige.

    go to Hodgdon's web site for load data. They have some listed but probably less than you'd find if you buy the book.

    mallard',

    Hodgdon only has pistol loadings listed on their website.

    Calvin,

    You da' man. That is exactly what I'm looking for! What kind of grouping can I expect to see with those loads? I know that things will vary from gun to gun. How far out have you shot either round? Thanks again for the help.

    Expect around 1.5" or possibly smaller at 50yds...my 44mag gun does just a hair over 3" at 100yds which is the farthest out I would ever shoot at something with either the 44 or the 41 unless it was like a real small deer

    ec90t, if the link above works, this is data for Speer 210g Gold Dot. I have used them since they became available for hand loaders. ........Roger

    Thanks Roger,

    I was trying to find that kind of info, but was unable. Sometimes you have to be a little smarter than the tool you're trying to use.

    ec90t, Just to let you know the use of rifles still has not been ok'd. There is a proposal for their use but it still has not been approved by the DNR. I was at the State Office building today on other business and stopped in and checked with them on this. There is an open meeting to discuss this issue on March 26th at Fort Harrison at 6:00 pm.

    John,

    I know that the final adoption hasen't been made, but I have it under very good authority that it is in the bag! My sources are about 99% correct on this kind of matter.

    Eric,

    Here are several reloads my dad has used for deer hunting:

    14.6gr 800x 170gr sierra jacketed hollowpoint 1760 fps

    9gr herco 215gr lead semi wad cutter 1100 fps

    *11.5gr 800x 215gr cast semi wad cutter 1475 fps

    9gr herco 220gr speer solid point 1220 fps

    *11.6gr 800x 210gr remington soft point 1480 fps

    The 2 load with the astericks are his favorite, he doesnt use the hollowpoint load any more as he shot a small doe with it and the bullet came apart and did not exit the deer.
