The 44 magnum I have, after loading Lil’Gun loads had an impressive kick. Launching a 200gr bullet 2,000 FPS.
Just before the sun went down I managed to test 3 different H110 loads in the 41 magnum. Launching a 215gr bullet 1,700 FPS. It did not kick quite as hard as the 44 did with those Lil’ Gun loads but it definitely commanded some respect. I am baffled that this caliber did not get more attention than it did. It’s a very respectable round. Very happy with this purchase.

Those 45 Colt loads I made up for the Ruger Blackhawks, coated 250gr Missouri Bullets loaded with Unique, launched 1178 fps from this rifle, or about 770 ft lbs. About 50% increase in power over the 5.5” revolvers.
Just throwing this out there....I have a 45 colt with a small hoop lever. Not sure if they are the same for the brass and steel frames without looking it up but they probably are. If you ever want to swap just let me know.

Thanks to little brother’s recon, I located some 17 HMR ammo. Haven’t been in a real big hurry to get that last Henry off layaway due to the fact it’s been a year since I saw 17 HMR on a shelf anywhere… grabbed 400rds.
