.32-40 Remington Hepburn

Introduced in 1872 the .32-40 Remington Hepburn for rolling block single shot rifles of the time. It was a dual purpose cartridge used for both hunting and target shooting. It is similar in design to the German Sauer series cartridges of the time. In order to hold the bullet, the case becomes parallel at the mouth. The reason Remington did this has been lost to history.

The .32-40 Remington Hepburn is capable of propelling a .308” in. dia., 150 grain bullet at 1,350 fps with 607 ft.-lbs. The rifles were manufactured with a 1 turn in 16” twist.
