45 Long Colt Ammo

The .45 Long Colt was the cartridge used in the Colt Single Action Army – also known as "The Peacemaker." With the introduction of the Taurus Judge, the .45 LC once again became popular as a "Peacemaker" and continues to be used for hunting and self defense. Learn More

    "Barely had to clean my rifle after shooting an entire box and had my rifle dialed in very quickly as a result of very little shot variation using this ammo."

    "This is without a doubt the CLEANEST ammo I have ever bought. The lead nose is painted so zero lead fingers! Every round went bang and cycled perfectly. Keep up the great work!"

    "This ammunition was dead-on accurate at 45 yards. However, the THX tip added a small amount of additional length such that every round would jam in attempting to cycle into the chamber of my Henry .45LongColt lever-action rifle. Shorter, hollow point ammunition had no problems. "

Quite possibly the most iconic cartridge in the United States, the .45 Long Colt was developed originally as a black powder cartridge in 1872. Colt Firearms collaborated with the Union Metallic Cartridge Company to produce the cartridge. And chambered for the new cartridge, the Colt Single Action Army revolver was released on the heels of the .45 Long Colt. In 1873, the revolver was accepted by the U.S. Army and became known as “The Peacemaker.” This cartridge became the primary ammunition for military issue sidearms.

No longer used by the military, the .45 Long Colt is still popular among hunters and sport shooters. Handgun hunters in North America still use it for large game, including deer and black bear. Long gun hunters who appreciate the .45 Long Colt have the ability to choose among many lever action rifles chambered in the caliber. The .45 Long Colt is also popular among many sport shooters, especially the Cowboy Action Shooters for whom adhering to the authentic historical aspect of their sport is important.

Ballistics for the .45 Long Colt are impressive. Lead round nose bullets weigh between 200 and 300 grains, and other variations are available for a variety of hunting and sporting applications. Muzzle velocity ranges between 750 feet per second and 1,300 feet per second – which means some loads exceed 1,100 foot pounds of energy! These numbers put the power of the .45 Long Colt in the neighborhood of the .44 Magnum.

A recent boost to the popularity of the .45 Long Colt cartridge has been the release of the Taurus Judge revolver series. Defensive loads for shotgun in a .410 bore quickly lost their novelty, but ammunition manufacturers surprisingly latched onto the Judge's versatility and made personal protection ammunition available in .45 Long Colt. This cartridge has expanded the applications for the pistol, and returned attention to the .45 Long Colt as a legitimate personal-protection cartridge.
