A: Good to hear from you Jim! This ammo ought to function correctly in any 45 Colt rifle or revolver, provided that it's in good condition. Hornady adheres to SAAMI specifications, which means this ammo would theoretically be safe for firearms that were made during the 1800s.

A: Thanks for reaching out Sam! This ammo is loaded in accordance with SAAMI specs and does not generate more pressure than the classic 45 LC calls for. If your revolver can safely fire 45 LC ammo, then it should handle this standard pressure self-defense load no problem!

A: Thanks for reaching out Mike! According to Hornady this round has an OAL of 1.580".
