45 Long Colt Brass
We also offer New Starline 45 Colt Brass
The 45 Long Colt Brass started out in handgun way back in 1872. This caliber started as a black-powder revolver caliber to be used in the Colt Single Action Army revolver. The United States Army started using the 45 Long Colt in 1873. This caliber served the Army for over 18 years. The proper name for this caliber is just .45 Colt and can be also named .45 LC as well. Please do not confuse the caliber with today’s very popular .45 ACP round. Due to the recent popular Cowboy Action Shooting competitions, the .45 Long Colt is becoming popular again.
Also, handgun hunters and metallic silhouette shooters use the caliber for their shooting sports. The .45 Colt is the basis for the .454 Casull caliber. This caliber is longer and uses stronger brass. A .460 Magnum revolver can also shoot the .454 Casull and .45 Long Colt calibers. As with all reloading techniques, please refer to published data only and practice safety.
All our 45 Long Colt brass is mixed commercial headstamp. We only source this once fired brass from indoor ranges. Some of the order may contain some nickel cases, but this would be a low count. Because the brass is from an indoor range, it will clean up with very little effort. If you would like Monmouth Reloading to clean the brass for you, please let us know. There will only be a slight upcharge in price and you will be pleased with the results.
