The Ashkenazim Pasken like the Rama. Rama = 241
In a non-leap year, Shavout is the 241st day in the year if Heshvan and Kislev are both Haserim (have 29 days):
Tishrei -30 days
Heshvan, Kislev, Tevet - 29 days each
Shvat - 30 days
Adar - 29 days
Nisan - 30 days
Iyar - 29 days
Sivan - 6 days (Shavuot is on the 6th day of Sivan)
