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.

    Strap on your gauchos and load up your leather belt with these .45 Long Colt cartridge from Magtech's Cowboy Action brand. Just as the name suggests, these loads are expressly made for Cowboy Action competition and have features that make them a great choice for plinking and practice as well. Magtech is a Brazilian company that, along with parent company CBC, has one of the most expansive histories in the international ammunition industry. Their products are dependable, affordable, and highly recognized in the U.S. shooting sports. Each of these cartridges is made using a reloadable brass casing that can be reused in custom hand loads later down the line.

    The case has a fine ring of moisture sealant at its primer pocket to help protect the propellant and non-corrosive primer mixture from the elements both in storage and the humid environment of a cowhide holster on a hot, sunny day. The brass case itself is lightly crimped at its midsection to keep the lead flat nose (LFN) projectile from moving rearwards under recoil while in either a cylinder or tubular magazine; this prevents setback from causing a malfunction or hurting accuracy. The bare LFN weighs in at 250 grains which is heavy for the .45 LC caliber but has been loaded for low recoil, making it a prime candidate for shooting matches.
