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.

1 of 5 45ACP mostly Blazer small primer September 1, 2020
Reviewer: Steve from Arkansas  
Very Disappointed. More than 50% of the 45ACP cases are small primer. Once small primers are available I will have to keep the loads separate to eliminate hours of sorting time. I will order from another dealer next time.

2 of 5 Way to many small primer August 24, 2020
Reviewer: Byron from Florida  
I read the other reviews and looked like about 15 percent were small primer and 85 percent large. I got 50 percent of each. Kinda disappointing. I wanted mostly large primer. I should have waited for starline to restock. Wont buy again. The .357 casings were fine, just a few 38s

5 of 5 .45 acp 1000 Ct Bulk August 11, 2020
Reviewer: RG from Missouri  
Ordered on the 3rd and received on the 11th.  Ship time was good and packaging was fully taped on all sides with no exposed cardboard.  Received 117 small primer, 3 that weren’t 45 acp and the rest were large primer.   All were in good condition, no dented, scared metal.  Overall, same as other buyers.  Will order again.

5 of 5 .45acp mix July 21, 2020
Reviewer: DG from California  
I haven't counted every case by headstamp, I'm just depriming and sorting large and small primers.  I'm running about 30-1 Large to small primers.  So far after pulling about 400 cases out of the bag, I've only found 2 that I sent to the recycle bin because while it probably could have been loaded, it looked questionable.  1 random 45 long colt mixed in so far.  Will buy from again.

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.
