Can you shoot colt 45 ammo in your 45 long colt pistol?
Have it checked over by a good gunsmith before you attmept this.
a gunsmith needs to check both the ammo and rifle.
Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver)… Read More
DON'T DO THIS UNLESS THE MAKER SAYS IT IS SAFE TO DO SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.38 Special. It can also fire .38 Short Colt and .38 Long Colt. Do not attempt to fire .38 S&W from a .38 Special.
No. A .357 Magnum revolver (not an automatic, lever action, or anything else with a headspaced chamber) can fire .38 S&W Special ammo, but not .38 Long Colt.
The pistol fired the .38 Long Colt cartridge, not to be confused with the .38 Smith & Wesson Special (.38 Special), .38 Super, .38 Short Colt, or any other cartridge marked as .38 or .380. That is the only ammunition type which can be fired through this pistol. Current production .38 Long Colt ammo may be run through this pistol. However, I would advise you to have a competent gunsmith inspect the pistol to ensure… Read More
Nope. Matter of fact, you can't even load it. The .45 Automatic Colt Pistol (ACP) cartridge is longer than the .45 Glock Automatic Pistol cartridge (GAP). And the model 37 IS in .45 GAP. Both rounds headspace off the case MOUTH- the .45 ACP is too long for the slide to go into battery (close the action). And, with the exception of some revolvers, you cannot shoot .45 GAP in an .45 ACP firearm.
The same 45 cal. ammo used in the 45 cal. revolver. This can get confusing, there are very different cartridges that are '.45'. In semi-automatic pistol the most common is .45 ACP. The ACP stands for Automatic Colt Pistol, that is the company that developed the cartridge. But for revolvers, you would more commonly use the .45 LC (Long Colt) which is a longer round. Modern Derringer's are more typically a two barrel gun that… Read More
If it's stored properly, it can last a very long time. If it's ammo that has not been stored properly, or if it's ammo that is carried daily, it can sometimes (but not always) devolop problems in a year or two. Many trainers and instructors suggest that you shoot up your carry ammo every year or so.
For an extremely long time. It depends upon conditions and ammo type. Civil war explosives are still dangerous.
as long as the ammo is for the 45 ACP pistol it will work. can't use 45 revolver ammo in the ACP
DO NOT TRY THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Proofhouse.com has Colt sn data.
Caliber .45 long Colt
.45 Long Colt.
any sporting shop that sells ammunition..................
NO!!!! 45 Long Colt may fit in the bore, but centerfire pistol cartridges run higher pressures than shotgun, and it could lead to a catastrophic failure.
You can fire a .45 ACP cartridge through a .45 ACP pistol - and only a .45 ACP pistol. The various .45 cartridges (.45 ACP, .45 Long Colt, .45 GAP, etc.) are not interchangeable with each other.
No. The S&W .32 long is a RIMMED revolver cartridge. Your SACM is an auto pistol, and uses rimless ammo. See the link blow- it includes a pic of the cartridge. Sorry. PS- MOST rimless ammo headspaces on the MOUTH of the cartridge case. Where a revolver can shoot different length cartridges, the auto pistols are pretty well tied to the exact length cartridge.
the judge fires 45 colt which is the same as 45 long colt not to be confused with 45 acp it also fires 410 shot shells
You are able to fire .22 Long Rifle or .22 shorts.

No, they are different sizes.
45 cal. Long Colt (.45LC) rounds like those used in a 45 cal. revolver. Many of this type of Derringer also can fire .410 gauge shotgun shells. Do a search for your specific model and get the manufacturers recommendations for ammunition.

What is the value of a colt 22 automatic long rifle challenger pistol in the original box with the assembly and cleaning instructions plus original ammo gun cleaning patches and 3 in one oil?
listing the model and serial number would help a great for someone to estimate the value.................................and overall condition............................
As long as the +p is SAAMI approved ammunition
They are the same exact round. When the .45 Schofield (S&W) round was introduced in the late 1800s people began to refer to the .45 Colt as the .45 Long Colt, or Long .45, because the .45 Schofield was shorter. The name may have changed for a while, but the actual round never did.
It's not the same. .45 LC (long colt) and .45 Mag are not the same.
Not unless the maker says it is safe to do so.
it 's a pistol build in the fifties.. the value depend of the general state.. between 400 and 650 dollar. Bring it to a gun shop to have a expertise. yours, a fan of the colt challenger.
No. The .22 Long Rifle is not compatible with the .22 Long cartridge. Most .22 Long Rifle revolvers, lever and pump action rifles fed from a tubular magazine, and single shot rifles can accept .22 Long and .22 Short cartridges, but the .22 LR round is too long for a dedicated .22 Long chamber.
Needs to be examined by a gunsmith.
There are revolvers made with 2 cylinders that can switch back and forth between LR and Magnum ammo. However, those have a barrel bored to magnum specs. Simply adding a magnum cylinder to a 22 LR is not safe.
No. The .22 LR is a straight sided RIMFIRE cartridge. The Hornet is a bottlenecked CENTERFIRE cartridge. The chamber of a Hornet is MUCH bigger- you could not get a Hornet into a .22 LR chamber- and the firing pin would hit in the wrong place.
45 long colt ammo for modern weapons. If black powder weapon should only used re-loads with black powder
What does the LR mean on Colt Frontier Scout single action mean and where do you find it on the pistol?
LR stands for Long Rifle which means the pistol uses a .22LR caliber bullet
You have colt pistol 05100 on the barrel Hartford ct can somebody tell you anything about it has been in the family a long time email jlhkehhotmailcom thanks?
Your best bet is to get it lettered by Colt.
about 1934 I disagree. Colt began 1948 with serial number 30600 on the Official Police and they began 1949 with serial number 33500 so this pistol was certainly made in 1948.
No, and you shouldn't even use. 38 Special ammo in it, either. If it was made in the 1800s, it was probably chambered in .38 Long Colt, and that is the only ammo which is compatible with that revolver.
Nope. 357 magnum cartridge is too long, and too powerful.
50-300 USD or so
Nope. The .450 is a belted cartridge.
Maybe. You need to figure out which .38 your Colt is chambered in. .38 Short Colt and .38 Long Colt guns will not chamber a .38 Special. .38 Colt Special is the same as regular .38 Special. If you cannot tell which caliber it is you need to take it to a gunsmith and have him tell you.
depends on if its a s & w or a s 7 w long
Is it safe to shoot the newer super X hollow point Long rifle ammo in an old single shot bolt action 22 model 1031822?
I'd stay with standard velocity ammo which it was designed for.
The answer depends on the weapon and the use. If you are looking for duck hunting ammo then the answer is different than the ammo used to target shoot at long range. Please give WikiAnswers enough information to answer your questions.
