.320 S&W Rifle (.32-100) case, cartridge dimensions desired


#1

The more I look into these old S&W cartridges, the less I know. It seems like it might be a shortened .32 Ideal case (sorta, kinda). Does anybody have an example they can measure for me, along with the factory load? Sharpe has it as 11 grains of black, which is the same as the .32-44 Target revolver cartridge. I guess you could use that cartridge in the rifle, but the .320 supposedly had a 1.466" case (plus or minus).

Thanks for any help or direction you can give me.
