S&W 41: What it likes to eat
I've noticed that my Smith & Wesson Model 41 is somewhat picky as to the ammo it likes. I tried some Federal ammo (I forgot which one exactly but I know it was lead) that I got on sale at WalMart. That crap missfired most every round...no exageration.
Then, I tried CCI Minimag, copper plated, and it was fine.
I tried that same earlier crap in my Remington 597 plinker rifle and it worked great.
Okay, so my S&W 41 is a bit more precision-built than the 597, with closer tolerances; I can understand that.
My question is, do any of you S&W 41 owners out there have a favorite round for your '41? What have you found that works the best for that gun for you? I'm sure different rounds have a profound difference in that gun, as opposed to many other 22 cal longrifle guns. I'm especially interested in accuracy, since I do target shooting with my '41.
