32-40 John Wayne edition


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have 2 boxes of Winchester model 32-40 ammo. These are nickel plated "John Wayne" edition boxes. The base of the cartridge is also stamped with the word "Duke".

Does anyone have info about these. I bought this ammo many years ago, mid 1960's when I started hunting with my Grandpas 32-40 model 1894. I will be able to post photos soon.

Thanks for the help.

Jay

I have my family Winchester Model 1894, also in .32-40 and picked up a few boxes of that John Wayne stuff when Winchester brought back that caliber in the 1894 rifles briefly in the 1980s. It's nothing special. I bought it for the 'brass' in the event I ever needed to reload it.

I just purchased a .32-40 rifle. But I am not one of those re-loaders that are handy with manipulating brass to fit certain hard to find calibers. I am almost afraid to give kudos to Ventura Munitions for their prices for this ammo. Just buying brass for .32-40 can cost $2 a piece. To be able to buy ammo for the same price as plain brass is fantastic. I have not shot the whole box, but it loads and cycles easily. It is more than accurate enough for my purposes. It goes without saying that I will be buying more of this ammo. It almost makes me not want to reload .32-40, but no !

John: Its a fun easy job to hand load the 32-40 ! Using the Lee hand press you can be at the kitchen table and load !!! you should think about that...... Ol Deuce
