WCChapin | .41 Magnum – Part III – Loading Hard Cast Bullets & Ramshot Enforcer
Using the trusty “RJ” LEE Pro-1000 to load the first rounds for a newly acquired .41 Magnum Revolver.
My .41 Magnum journey began when my friend “R.J.” offered this LEE Pro-1000 and dies at an attractive price – he also provided the cast bullets.
“Loads of Bacon” graciously contributed a large batch of .41 Magnum brass.
Everything was in place – except for the firearm! Kevin Schupbach of Schupbach’s Sporting Goods provided opportunities to purchase three separate very nice .41 Magnum revolvers. I chose this 4″ Smith & Wesson Model 57.
