.45 Long Colt 180 Grain RNFP Lead Cast– It doesn’t matter if you are heading on Safari, shooting at the range or needing ammunition for self-defense and protection- Choice Ammunition produces each and every round with the same care and precision only Hand-Loading can produce, 100% of the time on each and every round. This round is designed as a “mid-velocity” round that is easy to shoot with minimal kickback and recoil.
The lead round nose flat point bullet – also known as LRN-FP or the “cowboy bullet” – is one of the oldest bullet types to remain popular today. This particular bullet has been in use since the late 1800s, and was perfect for pistols, but it was shaped in such a way that it also worked for lever-action rifles like the famous Henry repeater rifles.
The early bullet makers had problems getting the basic round noses to feed properly, and the solution was found by cutting the tip off. Depending on where you live and what gun historian you speak to, this story will have different people involved, but it boils down to getting a reliable bullet that didn’t jam or misfire as much as early designs. Over time, as bullet and casing technology improved, other more advanced bullets showed up. But these lead round nose flat point rounds remain popular to this day – over 100 years later.
The best thing about this bullet is that you know it will work as intended – years of use in the field and on the range have proven this. Those who want to get that old-school experience with a lever-action rifle or single-action revolver, like the Colt Peacemaker, will want an authentic round to go with it and this is going to be the number-one choice for most.
Overall, this is a great bullet with a long history of use in the U.S. and abroad. It can be used for anything – so experienced shooters, stockpilers, reloaders and new shooters will all find something they like about it.
