The 38-40 Winchester was introduced originally as a black-powder cartridge in 1874.
It is basically a 44-40 case necked down to 38 caliber and with current smoke-less gun-powders it produces up to
500 foot pounds of energy and a veocity of 1,200 feet per second.
Like many multi-purpose cartridges this was chambered in both rifles and revolvers, and is still being produced today.
