.45 Long Colt ammo has been the preferred round of cowboys since the late 1800s. Of course, since then, bullet technology has come a long way. This cartridge will still function in those same tried-and-true cowboy weapons, while offering a higher degree of performance than some of its older siblings. These .45 Semi-Wadcutter Hollow-Point rounds will operate in a lever action as happily as they will a semi-automatic action. Their wadcutter shape allows them to be fired out of weapons that may require a wadcutter type round, while their hollow point design offers more terminal energy dispersion on impact with the target. Ideal for hunting or personal defense, these are the do-it-all .45 long colts your Old West sheriff would have been proud to use.
These Federal manufactured .45 Colt Lead Semi-Wadcutter Hollow Point (LSWCHP) cartridges weigh in at 225 grains, and travel at 830 feet per second out of the muzzle. They produce 344 foot-pounds of energy at the barrel, and their boxer-primed brass can be reused. These rounds come packaged in a plastic tray of 20 cartridges, with a Federal branded cardstock box wrapped around it.
