I had a polite conversation with a long time gun owner the other day about .45 Long Colt revolvers. He was convinced Long Colt was different from .45 Colt. I told him he was wrong . He told me I was wrong. Problem is I’m right. Thanks to the ammo manufacturers there is a lot of misinformation out there. This confusion is only going to get worse with the first time gun owner and the ammo shortage. Not all .45 calibers are created equal. The ammo and gun manufacturers are clouding the issue with their stamping also. Here’s a case in point. .45 colt stamped on the barrels of Uberti pistols is correct. However it will chamber .45 long colt ammo . Why they started marketing ammo as such is beyond me.
