45 AR, 45 Automatic Rimmed
0.889 - 0.894 O.A.L.
The .45 Auto Rim has an extra thick rim that allows it to be used without a moon clip in revolvers designed for .45 Auto/moon clip combination. It is built with the same integrity as our 45 Colt case. THIS CASE WILL NOT WORK IN SINGLE ACTION REVOLVERS CHAMBERED FOR .45 AUTO (such as the Ruger Blackhawk with .45 Auto cylinder).

45 Long Colt, 45 LC
1.270 - 1.280 O.A.L.
45 Colt Brass. Originally designed for use with blackpowder, the .45 Colt is one of the most powerful, commonly available handgun cartridges when loaded with smokeless powder. Our .45 Colt brass has been tested to .44 Magnum pressures in gun systems suitable for such loads. *New brass may require neck sizing for use with .452" and smaller bullets.

Cowboy 45 Special, 45 SPL, C45S
0.892 - 0.896 O.A.L.
The Cowboy .45 Special is a case that is optimized for use with light loads in .45 Colt caliber revolvers for Cowboy Action Shooting. Light loads with excessive airspace are a recipe for case splits and erratic function. By using the Cowboy .45 Special case, with its .45 Colt rim and .45 Auto length, the problem no longer exists. While many claim that .45 Auto load data can be used in this caliber, it is important to realize the limitations of the firearm it is chambered in and only use loads that fall within the pressure range of that firearm. Generally these can be loaded using .45 Colt dies and a modified (shortened) crimp die, or .45 Auto Rim roll crimp die.

1.790 - 1.796 O.A.L.

The 45 Raptor is a rimless .460 S&W mag that was designed for use in the AR-10 platform. It can now be found in some bolt-action rifles, such as the Savage Model 10. To convert for bolt-action rifles it requires only a barrel change and for AR-10 platform rifles it requires a barrel change and a modified magazine.  The 45 Raptor uses .460 S&W load data and 45 colt/454 casull or .460 S&W dies.

Barrels for both AR-10 and Savage Model 10 rifles are available from Satern Machine/Liberty Barrels. Modified magazines are available from Medesha Firearms, they can be contacted at medeshafirearms@aol.com or by phone at (480) 986-5876.

45 Smith & Wesson, 45 Schofield, 45 S&W
1.090 - 1.100 O.A.L.
45 Schofield is similar to the 45 Colt. Differences include head diameter approximately .010" larger, case length is 1.090" to 1.100" compared to 1.273" to 1.283" in the .45 Colt. Substantially less internal capacity for shooting light loads in most 45 Colt guns with no modifications. You may need to tune extractor on some lever action rifles, or decrease diameter of the ratchet on the cylinder by .010 to accommodate the larger head diameter in Ruger Vaquero and Colts. Also increases magazine capacity in rifles.

0.892 - 0.897 O.A.L.
45 Super* is the same externally as the 45 Auto, but has a thicker web, denser grain structure in the metal, and special heat treat process that enhances the durability of the case. Similar internal capacity as the 45 Auto. Some 45 Super load data was published by Triton Cartridge before they went out of business. *Loads to be shot ONLY in guns modified professionally to handle extreme pressures of this cartridge. DO NOT SHOOT IN STANDARD 45 AUTO!
