Remington Hepburn caliber ?
Jan 26th, 2013 at 10:05am
Print Post  
Hi Guys, I'm looking at a Remington Hepburn that has 32 2 1/4 stamped on the barrel. I asked the guy selling it just exactly  what it was. He said it was a 32 Remington Hepburn. I looked it up in my Cartridges of the World and they don't mention that one. And they say the 32-40 Remington is 2 1/8. Any ideas ? Thanks, Dale.

If it's a 32-40 Remington, it would actually be a .30 caliber at about .308"-.309".  Bob

The Remington 32-40 is a proprietary caliber, not the same as the common 32-40 Marlin Ballard, as mentioned above.

When in doubt, say it's
a sniper scope.

As mentioned above?

Wasn't there an identical thread posted just a while back?

In my Donnelly book of case conversions it lists the 32-40 Remington Hepburn also known as 32-40 Remington.
Case length is 2.13 it lists the case as a straight taper. and the base case as the British 303. Bullet as .309. If anybody wants to look it up its on page 377.

I tried to find the other thread using the search function.  As usual it doesn't work. Is it me or is the search function simply turned off? Very frustrating.   Angry

I probably didn't put down my question in the way I wanted. Or I could of put it down in a better way. What I was aiming for was since the barrel marking on this Hepburn is 32 2 1/4 and the 32-40 Remington cartridge is stated to be 32 2 1/8, is this one and the same? I guess I'll take for granted this rifle is a 32-40 Remington and leave it at that. I didn't quite know what you meant, Mr. Westerner, about there being an identical thread awhile back. Sorry, I didn't know about it or missed it. Dale.

I remember the thread. Since it could have been in several different categories, makes it hard to find. Wished I knew how to use the search function. I don't think it works.  In the thread I posted a picture of two original cartridges The Winchester version and the Remington.  If your bore is .308 ish, you have the Remington version.
Base and rim diameter of the Rem is larger than the Win case.

I got to see a 32-40 R  barrel this week at a show.  Dropped the wisdom the it was different from a winchester and the barrel came off a Hepburn and was probably a .308.     He was not interested in selling  as he thought there was a project in the distant future. 

Anyway,  Thanks to all  on the forum that make the rest  of us look smarter !
