    New Carry Revolver

    Well I let one of these babies get away from me a few years ago and regretted it ever since. I have been looking for another Taurus 415 for quite a few years and have had no luck. Recently I was helping a buddy at the big gunshow in Houston, and while manning the booth struck up a conversation with an older gentlemen in the booth next to us. I found out that he really likes the 41 magnum caliber as much as I do. While discussing the different guns available that shoot this caliber I made mention of the Taurus 415 and how I would like to find another. He mentioned he had one. I asked if it was for sale and he said yes. So after some negotiation on the price, it showed up at my door.
    I finally got a chance to take it to the range and remembered just how much I really missed the gun. I took 4 different loads to try in it but unfortunately did not have any of my pet reloads that shot so accurately in my last one.
    Winchester 240gr Platinum Tips were the largest and averaged three inch groups at 15yards, Federal and Remington 215gr. shot 2.75" and 2.5" respectively....but the best of the bunch was the Hornady 210gr XTP's. They averaged 2.25". Since this gun was bought primarly as a carry weapon I only tried factory hollow point loads and I am not disappointed. I am pretty lucky since the gun fits the same holster as my 3" GP-100 so carrying it IWB is very comfortable. A little dehorning of the sharp edges and it will be good to go. Christmas came early this year, for me anyway.

    Nice snubbie, have you had good service from Taurus Revolvers? I see the 415 listed in the catalog is it not available new? It sure shoots some tight groups, what fps do you get with SD loads?

    I am glad you found what your looking for. And , 41 mag too! The great thing about a big bore revolver, is you don't have to stress about what type of bullet you use. They spit them all out, and they are big and heavy enough that designer bullets are not necassary. Enjoy, and keep this one!

    I had a .41 Blackhawk and loved it. Probably the best shooting revolver I've owned. Great cartridge that receives little credit and use. Perfect for hunting and packing in the woods. Not the handful teh .44 (and larger) is and more punch than the .357s. Enjoy!

    I do like the grips on those. Got to try my brother-in-law's gun. They are a real aid to good shooting.

    Nice lookin gun there. Altho I prefer CC'ing my S&W CS45 - I find myself often CC'ing my .38 snub nose revolver in pocket carry. Thinking about a larger caliber carry revolver one day.

    My first duty gun in San Antonio in the 70's was a S&W Mod 58 .41 Mag. It is a GREAT round. Congrats, keep updating on reliability etc.

    That's a nice looking pistol. I wish that Taurus would make their text as inconspicuous on all their pistols The letters on my PT1911 are just sinfully ugly.
