I have several 41 mag pistols now upgrading to a 41 mag rifle. Unsure of what I want to use for bullet weight, bullet types, and powder charges. Can anybody help me?

Thanks.

I have three Marlin .41 Magnum Marlin rifles. They all like the 210 grain Hornady XTP and Winchester 296 powder. There is an excellent article on loading the .41 Carbine in Handloader # 121.

Hope this helps.

But I never chrony-ed it.

I also use 210gr Nosler JHP, but not sure if that will pose an issue with a lever rifle.
