Anyone have first-hand experience with the .41 Magnum on black bear? I'm thinking about buying a Ruger Blackhawk, 6 1/2-inch barrel, as a dedicated hunting revolver. I'm also thinking that one of Marshall's 265-grain slugs at about 1100 fps would be more than adequate in both power and penetration on these critters. We have some big ones here in Southern Oregon -- not uncommon to hear of them getting close to 500 pounds.
