When it comes to the world of shooting, there’s nothing more iconic than the infamous Colt M1911. Developed in 1904 and 1905 by John Browning, the .45 ACP was designed to be the semi-auto version of the .45 caliber. It was actually the U.S. Military that originally requested an updated round. General John Thompson was quoted as saying that he wanted a “real man stopper” pistol. This was after the ineffectiveness of the .38 in the Philippine-American War.

John Browning, working for the weapons manufacturer Colt, was the mastermind, but the .45 caliber wasn’t his first option. In fact, he had been working on a .41 caliber before the military decided, after testing several caliber sizes, that the .45 was the proper size. It started out being developed with a 200 grain bullet that was able to reach a velocity of 900 feet per second.

However, after more intense testing, the round was adapted to use a 230-grain bullet and go on to become known as the .45 ACP. Though the round is still extremely popular, and used by many agencies around the world, many are still switching to the 9mm strictly based on cost and the amount of rounds available in the gun.

Each box contains 250 fully processed once fired brass shell casings. This is fully processed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. Casings have been deprimed, resized, and polished. This brass contains different manufacturer's headstamps. It is recommended that all brass be inspected, prior to being reloaded and fired.

5 of 5 Good supply October 27, 2021
Reviewer: Dave from Paulden AZ.  
I have not been disappointed in the availability of hard to find brass.
Sometimes 45 colt and 45/70 can be difficult at best to get and if I keep checking back they usually have it .
But like all range brass you do have to be careful about defects .

4 of 5 Down to Brass tax! October 27, 2021
Reviewer: D.Green from Liberty MO  
I ordered a 250 piece 45acp fully processed brass, but what I got was almost brand new brass. Once fired maybe, but looked better than some factory brass I have seen and shot. Shipping was fairly quick and was a nice touch that it came in a locking container all be it was plastic, but to get an extra little surprise knowing my brass was shipped in a container and not just a ziploc bag or cardboard box was nice. Will for sure be ording from yall again very soon. Thank you for being there for us reloaders, cant wait to give yall more money$$$.

2 of 5 .45 ACP brass is dirty February 10, 2021
Reviewer: Rod Nelson from Corona, Ca  
I am new to reloading, and wanted new brass to start my learning curve. I decided to go ahead with buying "fully processed" brass from Capitol because they advertised it as "fully processed".
They gave me a great price, it shipped quick and I received it within days. However, the brass IS NOT "fully processed". The primer pockets are VERY dirty, which will REQUIRE me to clean them before proceeding.
Being that  need to invest time and money to clean them before I proceed, the "great price" IS NOT as advertised.

5 of 5 45acp processed brass January 2, 2021
Reviewer: Ron from Grumpy old Left Coaster  
I emailed before I bought. Their 45acp processed brass is all large primer pocket. I found a few tight primer pockets but all seated...I normally use CCI Primers, but had to use Federal this time due to what I could get, so Federal may be different than the CCI I am use to...I ran them through sizing die as I was priming, all seemed to be sized fine. Brass is bright and shiney inside and out found one piece 45GAP in the bag of "250" I am loading. I have not counted the brass. I will as,I finish loading and boxing. A bit pricey, but everything is right now. The first review was very negative on quality control, but it is from 2019...so it would appear they have tightened things up.

1 of 5 Caution April 15, 2019
Reviewer: Bob from Ohio  
Before loading, check primer pocket size- small and large primer sizes are included.  These cases have not been swaged.  I expected fully processed to mean exactly that
