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.

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. These .357 Magnum Cowboy Action Hi-Tek Coated Lead 125 grain TCFP rounds feed reliably in Lever Guns as well.
Our bullets are “Hard-Cast.” Hard cast bullets are just that: harder. We use a 92% Lead/6% Antimony/2% Tin bullet alloy for casting all bullets.
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 nonabrasive 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!
