  • .45 Long Colt 200 grain Plated Round Nose Flat Point- We place the same care and passion into each and every round produced as those do in their own private loading rooms. These techniques produce the most reliable, accurate round of ammunition available on the market today!

    These Plated Flat Point Bullets are swaged and plated to final weight and re-struck for accuracy and precision.  This premium, precise plating not only reduces the amount of lead exposure during shooting, it also helps keep your bore much cleaner. The Flat Point also makes a good choice for target practice, well suited for deep straight line penetration.

    • Velocity 850 FPS
    • 100% Hand Loaded

    Question: What is the difference between Plated/Jacketed/Cast bullets?
    • Our bullets begin as a swaged lead core. The plating process works through electrolysis as the lead cores are tumbled in an electrically charged bath containing high-grade copper ingots. The copper clings to the lead and the longer the bullets remain in the bath, the thicker the plating. Our bullets are plated to the correct size and then taken out of the bath.
    • Jacketed bullets start with a copper cup, which is “drawn up” into the form of a jacket. Lead is then swaged into the jacket.
    Question: How thick is the “jacket” on your bullets?
    • Depending upon the caliber, the thickness of the plating on our bullets, ranges from 3.5 up to 8 thousandths of an inch of plating on each side. This is thicker than paper and ensures no lead in your bore. The bullets designed for higher velocities (45-70, 500 S&W etc.) have the thickest plating.

  • .45 Colt 325 Grain +P Wide Flat Nose (WFN) Gas Check- ** Our hand-loaded cartridges put this round in the same class as the .44 Magnum. These loads cannot be used in any original Colt Single Action Army or replica thereof, such as those produced by Uberti, Beretta, the Taurus Gaucho, or the Ruger New Vaquero, as these guns are built on the smaller frame with thinner cylinder walls. These loads should be used only in modern large-frame revolvers such as the Ruger BlackhawkRedhawk, Ruger’s original Vaquero (sometimes erroneously referred to as the “Old Model” which would differentiate it from the “New Model”, a completely different kind of design change).

    .45 Colt loadings can also be safely fired from any gun chambered in either the .454 Casull and .460 S&W Magnum cartridges, though proper feeding may be an issue in repeating rifles chambered for either the .454 or .460 as the OAL is significantly shorter. Modern rifles with strong actions (such as the Winchester Model 1894, Marlin Model 1894, and new clones of the Winchester Model 1892) chambered for the cartridge can safely handle the heavier loadings.

    The .45 Colt cartridge, which is sometimes called .45 Long Colt, .45 LC, is a handgun cartridge dating to 1872. It was originally a black-powder revolver round developed for the Colt Single Action Army revolver. This cartridge was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1873 and served as an official US military handgun cartridge for 14 years. While it is sometimes referred to as .45 Long Colt or .45 LC, to differentiate it from the very popular and ubiquitous .45 ACP, and historically, the shorter .45 S&W Schofield, it was only an unofficial designation by Army quartermasters. Current catalog listings of compatible handguns list the caliber as .45 LC and .45 Colt.

    The .45 Colt became the basis for the much more powerful .454 Casull cartridge, with the .454 Casull having a slightly longer case utilizing a small rifle primer in place of the large pistol primer. Any .454 Casull revolver will chamber and fire .45 Colt and .45 Schofield, but not the inverse due to the Casull’s longer case. The .460 S&W Magnum is a longer version of the .454 Casull and the .45 Colt. Likewise, .460 Magnum revolvers can chamber and fire the three lesser cartridges, but again, not the reverse.

    The Bullet-

    Our Hard Cast Lead bullet for the .45 Colt +P Bear Defense load is a gas check 325 grain Wide Flat Nose (WFN). This cast bullet is perfectly suited for hard hitting and massive terminal penetration and stopping power. Choice Ammunition, and our 100% Hand-Loading techniques- produce a round of ammunition for the .45 Colt in a +P round**(see first paragraph) that is demanded in dangerous game and defense applications.

    Accuracy, consistency and dependability are crucial at that final moments of such an endeavor. Choice Ammunition takes this responsibility seriously by meticulously weighing each powder charge with our proprietary formulas and temperature insensitive powders, seating the bullet at the exact length for optimal performance and test firing each and every lot of ammunition at an average of 500% over industry average. We have no high speed production machines- only passionate and dedicated load technicians pulling each and every handle, producing one round of ammunition at a time.

  • .45 Long Colt 200 Grain Hi-Tek Coated RNFP~ Our coated bullets have become such a hit with our “Cowboy Choice” line, we decided to introduce these tremendously popular bullets into our “Range Choice” lines of ammunition! Our range ammunition is produced with the same loading process as anything we do- 100% Hand-Loaded techniques producing the tightest loading tolerances in the industry, which equates to superior reliability and accuracy!

    We use a unique heat-set “HI-TEK Supercoat” manufactured in Australia, where it has been used for more than 20 years. The Hi-Tek Supercoat Bullet Coating totally encapsulates the lead projectiles and replaces standard wax lube.
    Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets are safe to shoot indoors.  The coating gives off no toxic out-gassing or particulate matter when fired. The coating is absolutely non abrasive and contains no PTFE or MOLY. There is no wax lube and it minimizes your exposure to lead. The end result is cleaner air, cleaner hands, cleaner equipment and cleaner guns!
    Check out a video of the Hi-Tek coating process here and see why you might want us to do it for you (but it’s worth it)!!

  • .45 Long Colt 250 grain Plated Flat Point- These Plated Flat Point Bullets are swaged and plated to final weight and re-struck for accuracy and precision.  This premium, precise plating not only reduces the amount of lead exposure during shooting, it also helps keep your bore much cleaner. The flat point design minimizes expansion and the keeps the bullet traveling straight even through heavy hide and bone. The Flat Point also makes a good choice for target practice, well suited for deep straight line penetration.

    • Velocity 780 FPS
    • 100% Hand Loaded

    With performance similar to our standard ammunition, these rounds are dependable, accurate and affordable enough for practice.

    Question: What is the difference between Plated/Jacketed/Cast bullets?
    • Our bullets begin as a swaged lead core. The plating process works through electrolysis as the lead cores are tumbled in an electrically charged bath containing high-grade copper ingots. The copper clings to the lead and the longer the bullets remain in the bath, the thicker the plating. Our bullets are plated to the correct size and then taken out of the bath.
    • Jacketed bullets start with a copper cup, which is “drawn up” into the form of a jacket. Lead is then swaged into the jacket.
    Question: How thick is the “jacket” on your bullets?
    • Depending upon the caliber, the thickness of the plating on our bullets, ranges from 3.5 up to 8 thousandths of an inch of plating on each side. This is thicker than paper and ensures no lead in your bore. The bullets designed for higher velocities (45-70, 500 S&W etc.) have the thickest plating.
