    I just acquired a 41 mag (Taurus raging bull 6.5"). Well now I need to feed my bull. I have several pounds of Ramshot True Blue on hand and am planning on using Missouri Bullet 215 gn LSWC. Has anybody used this combo. Has anyone used True Blue for 41 mag with lead bullets?

    Not lead, but plated.

    I tried 10.5 Grs of True Blue under an X-Treme 210 Gr plated TrFP @ 1.550 OAL and got 1043 FPS with the powder back against the primer, and 1013 FPS with the powder forward against the bullet. That is an outstanding number with the powder away from the primer. It left the cases very clean with no powder residue to speak of, and was accurate. Hitting a 10" steel plate at 25 yards with my 4" 57 was too easy.

    I see no reason it will not work well with lead in .41 Mag.

    Use this load at your own risk. Start low and work up.
