- Q & A
The .45 Long Colt, or .45 Colt, was designed in 1872 for the U.S. Army. Its creation can be credited to a collaborative effort between Colt’s Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company and the Union Metallic Cartridge Company who based it off its parent cartridge, the .44 Colt. It was originally made as a black powder round and used for the Colt Single Action Army revolver but today is produced as a smokeless powder round. It’s most often used by Cowboy Action Shooters but is also used for target practice and plinking. If you use your .45 Long Colt for self-defense you need to make sure it’s loaded with the right ammunition.
These .45 Long Colt rounds are manufactured by the 200-year-old Remington Arms Company. Each round weighs in at a hefty 230 grain; because these rounds are heavier they’re able to strike targets with greater force which is exactly what you want from a defense round. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing for greater penetration than standard HPs and the creation of a devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is specifically made for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Remington you get 50 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speedloaders ready for personal protection. Keep in mind that defense rounds produces more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, meaning the only way to ensure accuracy is through practice. Order multiple boxes for realistic training. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second and muzzle energy of 369 foot-pounds. Remington manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lonoke, Arkansas. Order now to be truly prepared when the time comes to defense yourself or those you love.
