I'm down at the Tulsa show and bought this loading tool in 44 WCF SS. I have never seen the SS before on a early tool and would have to wait until I got home to check the list of calibers that were made by Winchester or does somebody know what a 44 WCF SS is ?

I first thought that but by the time the Single Shot came out you would of used the 1882 tool.

I've seen S.S. stand for Sharps Straight but I don't think that is the case here with it being 44 w.c.f. Maybe the Tool was stamped in error. Is the chamber correct for 44-40?

Neat Tool!

Sincerely,
Maverick

Maverick,

I put a loaded 44 in it and it seemed about right but I should try seating a bullet in a case and see what kind of job it does.

Here is a Tool that is in 40-70 Sharps Straight Patched. Notice the S.S. is the same and in the same location. So I imagine it the tool was stamped S.S. by mistake.

Sincerely,
Maverick
