Default 32-20 not working in win.

some of the veteran lever owners are telling me that 32-20 rounds will feed and fire in 32WCF stamped rifels. I have an 1892 model win. 32WCF in excelent cond. I'm trying to use Ultramax 115gr. they will not feed into the chamber due to lingth. I have checked with other gun smiths and they are telling me that the 32WCF messures1.223 and the 32-20 messures1.590 witch is to long. Can some one clear this up for me. These same rounds work real well in my Marlin model 92.

.32 WCF is the original designation for the .32-20. Other makers did not want the Winchester name on their guns (Marlin). So they called the same cartridge by a different name.

If one is giving feeding problems, check to be sure the over all length is not exceeded. A different bullet profile may also be the cause.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

When I was ten yrs old, Mattel came out with a replica Win. Mod. 1894. The "classic" cowboy rifle. I begged and whined and got one for Christmas, 1958.

Just recently purchased a Win. Mod. 1894 in 30-30 (30 WCF), just happens to be mfg'd in 1958. And a Marlin Mod. 1894 in 44 Mag. mfg'd in 1964.

The Marlin in 44 mag just does it for me. The Win. is more of a "safe queen."

Marlin 1894 in .44 mag loaded with .44 sp 200 gr gold dots is my house gun. Haven't really wrung out the leverevolution stuff in the 30-30s yet. Used to have a .444, traded it off, it shot right where I looked with it and EVERYTHING I shot with it fell down.

I like levers a lot. Only have two right now. One is a Model 1873 Winchester, 1891 vintage. The other is a Marlin Golden 39A Mountie, 1967 vintage.

Used to have a Rossi Puma .357 Trapper. Unfortunately was dumb enough to trade it off.
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
