Debating with my brother over a .41 magnum and I need a little insite. Do you all think a .41 magnum, used in a lever action rifle, is suffiecent to kill a deer? Here's my situation. I like the Marlin lever guns a lot. I have shot both a .44 and .41 Marlin. I really like the feel of the .41 better than the .44. Thinking of buying one to hunt with him in Indiana next season.
