CCI Standard Velocity is a good all around ammo.

CCI standard velocity usually works very well and is affordable, but don't take our word for it---buy an assortment of standard velocity ammo and run your own tests.
Some M-41s march to the beat of a different drummer---well, sometimes.

I'd start with CCI standard velocity. Mine like it.

My go to ammo for my 41 is CCI standard velocity, there are more accurate (and expensive) ammo but I shoot off hand and the gain in accuracy is not enough to get me more points on a target. Some 41's are fussy about ammo but mine seems to shoot them all well. Good luck with yours.

Only shoot the minimum power ammo the gun reliably operates on. More powerful ammo turns the more powerful energy into excessive recoil energy which the frame then has to absorb. It is obvious that the excess recoil energy beats up the gun. For a long life with this superb target pistol, limit it to Standard Velocity ammo.

My Model 41 loves CCI Std Vel. That is about 1080 FPS as listed on the box.

I don't know any shooters who use HV ammunition in their M41's, infact the Gray beards recommend against HV ammunition.

I have been using CCI SV and it shoots within my hold. At the last match, the All Guard shooter next to me, with a President's 100 patch, was using Red Box Eley Tennex. About $20.00 a box of 50. I don't know that expensive of ammunition for my skill level.

I use CCI Green Tag. I have about a half a case left. When it is gone, if I'm still shooting, I probably go with CCI SV.

I recently picked up a used 41 made between 1960-1969 and tried CCI standard first and it wouldn't cycle all the way and eject the casing. Switched to Aguila SV and it ran flawlessly through 50 rounds. Going to stick with Aguila for now since I have 3 bricks of it and can pick it up for around $20 locally.
