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 1000 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges.

It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.

5 of 5 Great ... overall June 7, 2020
Reviewer: Rahsaan from WA  
Just like everyone else, I got about an 85/15 ratio of LPP to SPP.  I go 1026 pieces and only 5 weren't salvageable.  There were 287 Sellier & Bellot cases, but overall it was good.

5 of 5 Happy April 7, 2020
Reviewer: Jack from Pennsylvania  
The count was about 85%/15% of LPP to SPP, doesn't bother me cause once I get enough SPP I switch over to SPP for my Steel loads.  Had one 40 and one 9mm. VERY happy! Thanks

5 of 5 Pleased with the ratio of large primers to small July 9, 2019
Reviewer: Matthew from Ohio  
I was reluctant to order the unprocessed brass for fear that I would not get enough large primer cases to make it Worth it. I decided to order and count what came in my “1000” order. 916 large Primer, 116 small, and 3 that weren’t. 45ACP.  All in all i’m Happy, your mileage may very.
