There's not a lot of difference between the .41 .. .44 .. and .45 ... and on the working end the .41 and .44 are almost identical.

I know, but we just LOVE to argue the intricate differences between 45 Colt, 44Magnum, and 41 Magnum that 'clearly' indicate one or the other is 'vastly superior'.... :lol:

That's part of the fun... :mrgreen:

Good illustration. Lots of frontal area there on the .41.

We watch crime documentaries quite a bit and have to laugh some times. For instance, it's night time and the cops are studying a crime scene complete with fired cases on the ground. One glance and they can tell the case is a "9". Never mind that a .380 looks almost identical until you examine it closely. Or, they will find an expended bullet and declare immediately "yup, its a "9" alright" when it could be a .357, 380 , or several others.

Be interesting to hear the comments if they opened up someone who had been shot and found one of these in them.

I have seen a few expended bullets, and I have a difficult time telling one from the other in certain size ranges. With a 124 grain 9mm and a 125 grain .357 being so close, I don't believe I could tell the difference if both were hollow points or both soft points. Maybe the .357 might have expanded more. I think a lot of "Reality" shows are not quite real. Empty brass on asphalt in the dark seen by flashlight would be tough to tell exactly the caliber from 4 to six feet away. Of course, having the main character be able to say for certain in such a situation makes for more exciting TV.
