i bought a box of hsm .41 magnum bear loads at cabelas. how loud is the .41 magnum? i have been hunting with that caliber for a long time, i love the sound of gunfire but i am sensitive to noises that are louder than a .22lr. everything i found online for the .41 magnum was for handguns (163db). my .41 magnum is a Marlin 1894fg lever action rifle. i don't know what the barrel length is. i also bought a pair of sound filtering earplugs that are made by primos in conjuntion with Earpro, they have a 24nrr. would that be enought to get around my noise problem? please help!
