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.

    The 45 Long Colt is an all-American revolver cartridge. Who better to load your 45 Colt self-defense ammunition than Ammo Inc., which was founded in Arizona in 1990 and now has factories in their home state in addition to Wisconsin?

    This ammo is not compatible with firearms chambered for 45 ACP (aka 45 Auto). But if you have a Judge, Governor, Single Action Army or suitable lever-action rifle, then it is just the ticket for personal protection and walloping varmints at close-to-medium range.

    This round’s 250 grain projectile and 842 fps muzzle velocity provide a muzzle energy of 394 ft lbs – more than sufficient for personal protection. The bullet itself is a jacketed hollow point, with a notched jacket that splits down its seams to promote quick and even terminal expansion. Its flat meplat makes the JHP safe for lever-action rifles’ tubular magazines.

    Ammo Inc. loads new brass cases of their own creation, as well as the non-corrosive Boxer primers which make them reloadable. This ammo’s cleaner performance is attributable to Ammo Inc.’s Hyperclean Technology, which serves well to conserve accuracy when you can’t be bothered to brush out your barrel frequently.
