Ammo Overview

Quantity - 50 rounds per box
Manufacturer - Winchester
Bullets - 225 grain lead flat nose (LFN)
Casings - Boxer-primed brass


An old-timey round with a modern flair from the original inventor of the ammunition. This is literally the caliber they refer to when they say the 1873 was the “Gun that won the West”. How’s that for history? Not enough? This is the actual first centerfire metallic cartridge manufactured by Winchester. This cartridge is essentially dripping in nostalgia and history.

Some say that the round has killed more big game than any other round. Perhaps a similar statement could be made about outlaws, or train robbers, or even sheriffs. Whatever the truth is, the potency of the round is not to be dismissed. The .44-40 with all its history and legacy is still a very capable round, even if it does come in the most standard of formats by the original creator of it: lead flat nose with a heavy powder load.

This is a reduced recoil version of the original cartridge and features a very significant profile for a modern cartridge. It offers a brass case that is easily reloadable with a Boxer primer, and a reduced powder charge as well as a flat nosed simple lead bullet that offers a velocity of 750 feet per second. This is a perfect Cowboy Action shooting cartridge.

A: Thanks for reaching out John! Based on that info alone I cannot say for certain, as Colt produced the Lightning Rifle chambered for many different cartridges in addition to 44-40 WCF. But if your rifle is indeed chambered for 44-40 WCF, then it should fire this ammo just fine. Winchester loads it in accordance with the specs older rifles are designed for.

A: Hi James! Yes sir. This will work perfectly in the vintage rifles as long as the rifle is in good working shape. The cowboy loads are loaded to the lower pressure levels of the original black powder loads. Enjoy!
