Reed's Ammo sells ammo. Midway sells brass.

In the past, I have formed .41AE from .41 Mag brass. You have to trim to length, and remove the rim, turn in an extractor groove with a head size of a 9mm Luger. They work fine, just doesn't have the correct head stamping. I also made some .41's with the head size of the .45 ACP by turning down the rim and cutting an extractor groove. These cases are the same length as the .45 ACP, and are used in a 1911 that was converted back in 1963. Both cartridges are MOA accurate at 50 yards.

7.62x39mm brass is only .008" larger in diameter than the .41AE. Inside reaming will probably be required and the rim turned down to the proper diameter.

1/2" inch at 50 yards? Unbelivable accuracy!

That's for a 5 shot group from a machine rest out of a custom 6" barreled 1911, not free standing.

.41 Action Express cartridges usually bring $1 per round on the Gun auction sites, with the 170 grain loads going for a bit more. Some people are trying to get that much per piece of unloaded brass.

If you find any Speer Lawman ammunition, be aware that the foam rubber separators will probably have deteriorated and you will need to clean the crud off of each and every round.

I recently bought my sixth Tanfoglio in .41 Action Express. (It's a sickness) I have kits for a 1911 and Browning Hi-Power, but the Argentine FM-90 Hi-Power clone shot so well as a 9mm that I left it alone.

It seems that those .41 AEs do shoot rather well, as mine shoot right alongside my .38 Super match guns by Witness. I can't say if it is the gun or the cartridge or both.

The best jacketed bullet I have found for this round is the 170 JHP grain Sierra Sportsmaster, but I haven't tried all those that may or may not work. Molds can be found for .41 AE loads in several different places.

The bad news is that with the current feeding frenzy for anything firearms related, I don't see any ammo makers taking on any new projects within the next few years. They can sell most anything they make now, so why spend money on a niche project?

Quit hogging them all!

I occasionally get an itch to get a .41 AE, but I keep talking myself out of it. I'll want to hand-load for it, and I never see any dies out there. I could do a custom order from Lee, I suppose.

But, on the flip side, I'm trying to avoid getting into new "oddball" chamberings if I can't handload for them. I sold off my .32 NAA pistol because my handloading efforts were constantly failing, and I figure that Corbon will eventually stop making the ammunition for it.
In essence, I worry I'll end up with a gun that I can't feed.

This thread is wandering badly, so, it will be closed. This is also not the proper forum to try to sell items, or try to buy items. That forum is here:
