45 Colt

.45 Colt is a rimmed, straight-walled cartridge dating to 1872. Originally it was a black-powder revolver round developed for the Colt Single Action Army revolver. The .45 Colt was adopted by the U.S. Army in 1873. It replaced the .50 caliber model 1871 remington single shot pistols as well as various cap and ball revolvers converted to take metallic cartridges at the time. .45 Colt remains popular with renewed interest in cowboy action shooting. Additionally, the round has seen a resurgence as a cartridge in handgun hunting and metallic silhouette shooting competitions.
