Definitions for ".41 Rimfire Cartridge"
The .41 Rimfire Cartridge was first introduced by the National Arms Company in 1863 and was also known as the .41 Short and the .41-100. (In most designations like this, the second number refers to the black powder load, though in this case, it is unlikely that it means 100 grains of black powder). According to "Cartridges of the World," the .41 Rimfire consisted of a 130 grain (8.4 g) lead bullet propelled by 13 grains (0.8 g) of black powder in its original load.
