45 Long Colt Ammo

The .45 Colt cartridge is a handgun cartridge dating to 1872. It began as a black-powder revolver round developed for the Colt Single Action Army revolver, but is offered as a magnum-level, handgun hunting round in modern usage.

This cartridge was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1873 and served as the official US military handgun cartridge for 19 years.

It is sometimes referred to as .45 Long Colt or .45LC, to differentiate it from the shorter .45 Schofield, as both were used by the Army at the same period of time. Colt pistols chambered in .45 Colt could use .45 Schofield ammunition. Invest in pistol ammunition that has has stood the test of time - buy ammunition online today!
