45 Long Colt Ammo

Introduced in 1872, .45 Colt ammunition was originally a black powder cartridge used in the Colt Single Action Army. It is most common today in cowboy action shooting--and unlike some calibers used for such activities, it was actually used during the "Wild West" period!

Most .45 Colt loads use bare lead bullets, which are well-suited to shooting both paper and steel targets but may not be allowed at indoor ranges due to lead exposure concerns. A typical action shooting load fires a heavy (over 250 grains) bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 800 feet per second. Defensive and hunting ammo in this caliber will have higher velocities and recoil to produce better terminal performance. You'll find both rounds for the field and for range training for sale here at Widener's.

Although new firearms chambered in .45 Colt are unusual, one popular revolver that can fire this caliber is the Taurus Judge. In some cases, a .45 Colt cartridge is a better choice than the 410 bore shotshell commonly associated with that gun.
