Re: .41 Magnun VS. .45 (long) Colt
I'd go with the .45 Colt. I have some 200 gr Corbon at 1100 fps that are not light "cowboy" loads. I think PMC also makes a pretty hot (hunting) load, of course for revolvers that can handle the pressure. I always see Colt .45 ammo for sale, more often than .41. Besides my S&W mod 25, I shoot a SRH .454 but almost always use the .45 ammo. It's had to imagine that a gator would not live in fear of a standard .45 load, let alone one pumped up a bit. The prices I see are less for .45 than .41 too.
