In the near future, I may come into possession of a Win 94 in 32-40.  I have looked at a few numbers on the cartridge, but don't know a ton about it.  Thinking it will be fun to play with once I get my hands on it.  Till then, I am sorry, but no picture for a while.  What do you guys think and know about that round?

I have discovered that I will have to reload for it (which I do for my other rifles anyway).  Not sure how to get my hands on brass though.  Looks like I might have to form it from other brass.

You can also get cast bullets from Midway. Jacketed bullets are hard to come up with.  Good old guns. Keep the loads mild. 32-40 was the only caliber available for the first year of production of the 1894. I've got one and it has a four digit serial number. You might want to check.

Checked it out Hunter.  They are out right now.  Nothing till the end of October looks like.  Will keep checking. 

Utah, will have to look at the serial number when I get my hands on it.  Not sure when that will be.  Soon hopefully.

Yeah, I have done some searches and can't find a place that has it in stock.  Doesn't really matter till I have my hands on the gun.
