Here at Powder River, we handcraft our 45 Colt ammo with nothing but the best components. Hand-loaded in nothing but the best components like new Starline brass, laser-cast hard alloy bullets, and premium Federal primers, these cartridges are accurate, clean shooting, dependable, and re-loadable. All of our 45 colt ammo are smokeless cartridges, loaded to SAMMI spec of sub-14,000 psi (45 Colt Standard Pressure). This 45 Long Colt ammo also runs extremely well in both the rifle as well as in the pistol.

More Info
  • Similar to most great Western cartridges, the .45 Colt started out as a black powder cartridge and was developed in 1872 for the Colt Single Action Army, the famous Peacemaker. Like many cartridges over the years, much of its success and popularity is in part due to the U.S. Army adopting the 45 Colt as the official US military handgun cartridge. You may also see or hear 45 Colt ammo referred to as 45 Long Colt ammo or 45 LC ammo. 45 Long Colt ammo was just a nickname that was developed to differentiate it from the slightly shorter but very similar 45 Schofield. 45 Colt Ammunition and 45 Schofield ammunition were both used by the military in the same era, so naturally the nickname helped to distinguish between the two. One interesting fact about the 45 Colt that a lot of people do not realize is that the original 45 Colt ammo did not eject reliably out of the rifles, based largely in part to the minimal rim on the casing and due to the fact that it was not designed to be a rifle cartridge like the 44-40 cartridge. Modern advances have since created a thicker rim and the ability to cycle 45 Long Colt ammo through the lever action rifles, with many manufactures today cambering their lever action rifles in .45 Colt.

    At Powder River Cartridge, we take pride in both our 45 colt ammo and in the history of the cartridge, as well as the guns that it runs in. We offer .45 Colt ammo options for competitive cowboy action shooting, general plinking/shooting, hunting, and even personal defense. The 45 Colt is very popular both for its nostalgic history in this country and also because it truly is a very versatile round that can do it all. After nearly 145 years of use, there must be some reason it is still a popular choice. With some more recent guns reaching the market, such as The Judge pistol, there seems to be a revived interested in the historic cartridge.
