Welcome to the Forum. We have an "Introductions" area, also.

You have not given us enough information about your firearm. Does the barrel indicate what caliber it is? If it was designed for the 44-40, then no.

With few exceptions, do not use ammo in a firearm that it was not designed for.

There are MULTIPLE 32s, but the odds are your Winchester is not in .32 S&W long. There are 32-20s (on the left) 32-40s (middle) and most likely suspect, .32 Winchester Special on right.

And as the man said, stick to the caliber marked on the gun.
