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.

    The .45 Long Colt gun cartridge dates to 1872 and started out as a round designed for the Colt Single Action Army revolver. In fact, many .45 Long Colt guns today are replicas of the Colt Single Action Army revolver. Often marketed as a magnum-handgun hunting round, one of the most common uses of .45 Long Colt ammo today is in Cowboy Action Shooting. Hunters sometimes also use .45 Long Colt revolvers and some derringers (generally for collections or self-defense) that are chambered for the .45 Long Colt cartridge as well. Companies such as Winchester, Rossi, Uberti, and the Henry Repeating Arms company also produce lever-action .45 Long Colt rifles. Hunters and shooters will enjoy the vintage feel of the .45 Long Colt rifle, with its long history of use in the Army and was used for hunting or self-defense in the Old West. With their rich history, .45 Long Colt guns offer both modern functionality and fun for collectors, Cowboy Action shooters, and reenactors.

    This .45-caliber has long been considered “the gun that won the West.”   Noted for its power and reliability, it was the most popular full sized revolver of the late 1800s.  Turned out by the Colt Fire Arms Manufacturing Company of Hartford, Connecticut, it sold for $17 by mail order.  A classic single action revolver, it remains in production today.

    The model 1873 revolver, commonly known as the Colt Single Action, Peacemaker, or Frontier, was actually developed in 1872, based on the patents granted to Charles B. Richards and W. Mason. In 1873, the US Army adopted this revolver along with its black powder centerfire cartridge of .45 caliber, and issued it to troops in 2 models.
