Re: .41 Magnun VS. .45 (long) Colt
Re read the post from Skinnypig8.
He speaks the truth. In a weapon of adequate strength, the extra case capacity, and bore diameter, make the .45 Colt a round substantially more powerful than the .44 Mag, IF YOU LOAD FOR THE WEAPON.
Generally speaking, commercial ammo is loaded to pressure levels safe in the weakest arms chambered in the caliber.
A careful handloader can eclipse factory ammo, in a strong arm, easily; stuff that would wreck a Colt SAA shoots well thru my Winchester Trapper, in .45 Colt, with energy enough to ruin the day for 600 pound hogs; prolly, that would stop a 'gator?
