Handloader 11 January 1968
On the cover we have... Old-timers, especially real old-timers will no doubt recognize these reloading "antiques," including the Lyman Tong Tool in caliber .38-40 and the UMC primers. The blue green DuPont can once contained bulk shotshell powder, while the red can is marked "Smokeless Rifle Powder No. I." Lyman, of course, no longer manufactures this combination mould/reloading tool, but we'll bet a penny or two that many are s t i l l in use. Staff photo by Walter Schwarz.

.44-40 Winchester High Velocity Reload
Posted by A Handloader Fan on Jan 10th 2018
I have searched high and low for published loads of the the old .44-40 Winchester High Velocity loading. These can only be used in Winchester 1892, Marlin 1894, Remington 14-1/2.
Not for pistols, or pre-1892 rifles. Recent published loads are very weak due to people chambering these in weak firearms, potentially at great risk.
Thank you Wolfe crew for making these available again via DVD.
