History of the.38/40 Winchester Cartridge:
The 38-40 WCF ( Winchester Center-Fire) or 38/40 Winchester was introduced originally as a black-powder cartridge in 1874 for the Winchester Model 73 Lever-Action rifle.
It is basically a 44-40 case (which came out in 1873) necked down to 38 caliber and with current smoke-less gun-powders it produces up to 500 foot pounds of energy and a velocity of 1,200 feet per second.
Like many multi-purpose cartridges this was chambered in both rifles and revolver. Still in use today.
