Nothing harnesses the mental image of the wild west more than that of a gun belt slung low on the hip of cow puncher, law man, or desperado. The Colt Single Action Army (SAA) was the weapon of choice, and the .45 Long Colt was the caliber.

Since then, there have been a lot of really great advancements in firearms and shooting technology and the .45 Long Colt went by the wayside. Typical of its time, the .45 LC used a heavy, solid lead slug at slow speeds. The sheer mass of the cast bullets created terrible wounds without any need for frangibility.

As time passed the heavy, slow slugs from heavy, single-action revolvers gave way to faster, repeating semi-automatic pistols like the Colt 1911, and double-action revolvers by the likes of Smith and Wesson in smaller, more manageable calibers (.32 S&W, .38 S&W, .38 Special, etc.).

The .45 LC has been largely relegated to Cowboy Action Shooting matches now, and a new-found application in the mixed-caliber large frame revolvers from Taurus and S&W which mix .410 shotshell and .45 LC interchangeably.

Whichever application your uses fall under, rest assured that Winchester’s 250 grain lead flat nose will hit hard, burn clean, and function reliably. If you are in the camp of folks who still feed their wheel guns .45 LC, you know the struggle is real finding ammo so jump onto this covered wagon train while you still can.
