Default Winchester 32 CTG questions. Someone school me please.

I have an Smith and Wesson revolver that is marked Winchester 32 CTG on the side of it. I have done a little research but I am unable to figure this out. I have read that this is a 32-20. I hope that makes sense. Some one please set me straight so i can hopefully get some ammo and do some shooting with it. Thank you.

Well, it is called .32 Winchester, because Winchester developed it for the Model 73 rifle, back in 1882. Got popular as a revolver catridge, but started as a rifle round. Originally, 32 bullet, 20 grains of black powder (and the .38 Special only had 21 grains) Fun cartridge.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

32 cals can be confusing. do you have a caliper? measuring the cylinder length and comparing that to cartridge lengths will eliminate some due to a simple "wont fit" scene.

If you shoot that 32-20 be aware that for whatever reason 32-20 revolvers are extremely loud even though the cartridge is rather weak.
