This 45 Long Colt ammunition, by CCI, is great for pest control around your property or while camping or hiking. Each shell contains about 150 grains of #9 shot, with a muzzle velocity of 1000 feet per second. This shot has a minimal effective range, so you will have to be close to get a good lethal hit. The hard plastic cap on the end of this round is designed to break apart when in contact with the rifling of your barrel, so that the shot can have an unimpaired flight to your target. This specialty 45 Long Colt ammunition is hard to come by, so if you want any, now is the time to get it.
CCI does have some warnings that come along with this ammo. These shells are non-reloadable, and reloading should not be attempted. Do not use this ammo in weapons with ported barrels or ported recoil compensators. And, these shells are not made for use in 45 Long Colt rifles or in lightweight 45 Long Colt revolvers.

holds a nice pattern to about 16' but don't load more than 2-3 rounds in a revolver because the recoil will loosen the shot capsules and they can slide forward jamming up the cylinder. then you have to push back on the shot capsule to rotate again. all in all they are great for snakes and rats especially in a barn.
Bought for use in my Taurus Judge. My wife and I like to hike here in SC and safety is a concern of ours. One day on a hike of ours we came across what must have been a rapid fox. Instead of running from us it actually followed us and mirrored our every move of ours trying to avoid it. Long story short, one shot to its head, fixed sights on my revolver at about ten feet and it went down. In a panic situation when you don't have time to sight your weapon on the target, this ammo fits the bill!

Q: Will this work in a Henry Lever action 45 Long colt

By: Rob Haversat
A: Hi again Rob! Henry was fast to get back to me, and I was wrong – this ammo is no good for a Henry. "We do not recommend shooting shot shells out of any Henry rifle because the shot pellets may foul or damage the rifle grooves. In addition, the rifled bore will slow down and scatter the shot much more than a proper smooth bore, making accuracy very poor, especially at ranges greater than 5 feet. They also may not cycle properly, due to a non-standard cartridge profile."

Q: Will these work ok in a Ruger .40 revolver?

By: BRET ANDERSON
A: Hello, Bret! If a revolver is chambered for 40 S&W, it can't run 45 Long Colt. This round's bullet is half an inch greater in diameter.
Q: Would this work for my 1858 Pietta Remington with a taylor catrtrige cylinder converter?
Posted On: 4/22/2020
A: Hello Sebastian! I just asked my connection at Taylor's, and he said he wouldn't recommend it because the round's muzzle velocity is too hot at 1,000 fps.
Q: I have a Bond arms 2 barrel small gun(.45 colt/410). Its very heavy and well machined. Is this ammo ok-seems like a good fit?

A: Hi Gregory, that .45 shotshell is a perfect match for your Bond. I would suggest that you instead select a .410 shotgun round. It will perform much better and be less expensive. Leave the .45 Colt side to hard hitting soft or hollow point rounds!
