Liberty Ammunition, the global leader in high performance, lead-free ammunition for military, law enforcement and civilian markets, has added the .45 Long Colt caliber to their growing line of Civil Defense personal defense rounds.

The popularity of the .45 Long Colt started in 1872 when it was designed specifically for one of the finest guns in all of America’s history: the Colt Single Action Army revolver. The powerful cartridge was an effective negotiator during our country’s push west and was used for protection and hunting by many Americans.

Fast forward to 2015 and the historic caliber has been dusted off and revamped and added to Liberty Ammunition’s expanding ammo line-up. The new .45 Long Colt is a copper, monolithic, hollow-point fragmenting round with a weight of 78 grains and a velocity of 1800 FPS delivering almost twice the speed of the traditional round.

Liberty Ammunition’s .45 Long Colt round is a powerful defensive round and well-suited for handgun hunters. It delivers less recoil than a traditional .45 Long Colt, taking the discomfort out of range practice and making the big bore caliber manageable for all levels of shooters. For revolver fans, the .45 Long Colt from Liberty Ammunition delivers power, speed, less recoil and lead-free attributes at about the same cost of traditional .45 Long Colt ammo.
