Dating back to 1872, .45 Long Colt ammo is a type of handgun cartridge developed as a black-powder revolver round for Colt Single Action Army revolvers. The .45 Long Colt ammo got its name to differentiate it from the shorter .45 Smith & Wesson Schofield cartridge, which was also used by the Army around the same time as .45 Long Colt ammo. While both types of ammo were used by the Army, the favored .45 Long Colt ammo remained the official cartridge of the Army for nineteen years. Since then, .45 Long Colt ammo has been used as hunting round for deer and black bear. It has also been used in several lever-action rifles produced by companies such as Winchester, Marlin Firearms, Henry Repeating Arms, Chiappa Firearms, Rossi, and Uberti.
