Re: .40 WCF
Winchester experimented with a 46 cal. for the 1886 rifle. There is reliable documentation that only one gun was so chambered. A very limited number of rounds were made, no one knows how many. These rounds are a cartridge collectors holy grail, I have never seen one. The project was scrapped. Many people beleive that Doug Turnbull based his propriatery cartridge, the 475 Turnbull, in part on Winchesters old information, no one knows that for sure but him. So technically yes, they made one gun and a few shells.
