Re: Any one recall the story as to why Winchester never offered a 35 caliber round based on 30 WCF

The 32 special came about due to complaints about the .30-30 being unsuitable for reloading with black powder. And it's more powerful than the .32-40. As I recall the mdl 94 was chambered in (in order): .32WCF & .38-55, .30-30, 32 Winchster Special, .25-35, .44 Magnum, The 94BB in: .375 Winchester, ...
