Are .41 magnum shotshells still available? If so, where can they be found?

Thanks

Phil

    Been trying to figger out how to do it. Nobody makes the shell capsules and nobody produces loaded ammo.
    Started working with some 30-30 cases, but never got around to finishing.
    I think a 303 savage case would be better suited, but nobody has any to part with.

    Don't know that there ever where commercialy produced shotshells for this caliber. IF they were they are long gone.

    Best options.

    .41 mag case...3-4 gr of Red Dot...card wad or gas check on top of powder...#9-#12 shot... inverted gas check or thick card wad on top of shot.. roll crimp.

    an alternative to the over powder wad is to use a 410 shot cup. This reduces the shot capacity a bit but still works well. It is a tight fit and provides a good seal. It will have to be trimmed after inserted,a 35 caliber gas check will fit just inside it and can be roll crimped over the shot. I have not tried it yet but cutting the petals off the 410 shot cup would allow for a bit more shot. One could probably also be used for the over shot card.

    I have had pretty good results out to about 20-25 feet with the exception of a slight hole in the middle of the pattern that I suspect is caused by the over shot gc.
