Bumping because I don't want Mike (Doubletap) to think that there isn't enough interest for new loads for the .45 Colt!

Another bump. I sure don't want Mike to think nobody cares about 45 Colt loads.

Although I voted for the 335 grain Ruger only load, I think that the "all modern gun" loads should take priority. There are all sorts of loads out there for Rugers, but if you can trun my soon-to-be-possessed Single Action Army rig into a viable pair of field revovlers, I would be much obliged. Fact is, I'll probably reload almost all of the .45 Colt ammo I shoot, and while I feel comfortable loading cowboy loads for my SAAs and heavy loads for my Rugers, I wouldn't feel comfortable loading anyhting higher than target loads for my SAAs. Enter DT ammo and Mike's expertise (and "factory loads" status).

I want to see a Dbl Tap 45 Colt Equalizer

but unlike the 10mm equalizer with a 135 hp on top of a 90 grain round lead ball,

perhaps the 45 colt version could be a 165 grain jhp on top of a reversed 155 lswc

320 grains at maybe 900 fps????

Umm... YES. Rusty's idea rules. That would make a .45 Colt snubby hella viable as a belly piece, as though it weren't already.

I have tested and evaluated four loads. Two standard pressure 14,000psi and two Ruger only 25,000psi loads. They will be out within the next couple of weeks!

The 255 or 300 grain "safe for all modern firearms" would be outstanding. I just picked up a 625 mountain gun that was from the very first run (no cast parts, no lock, firing pin on the hammer, etc.). Those loads would be just the ticket for packing in the woods this year. They'd be just about right for close range deer out of my Winchester 94 Trapper, too.

Please?

Are the 45Colt loads available by phone? I can't yet find them on the DT website.

Mcnett, Thanks for broadening the market for us shooters! The .45 colt +p is a hard critter to find for those of us who don't reload. PMC is the only one I can find besides regular cowboy plinking loads. BTW andy chance at a DT .454 load, 300gr, 2000fps, that would be great.

I normally don't harp on people when they announce stuff like this, but hunting season is just a few months away and I really need a good load for my .45 Colt Mountain Gun. Any idea when one of these loads will be released?

Mike says he will add the 45Colt loads to his product line most likely by the end of July. He's thinking he'll start with two 45Colt loads and one in 44Mag. When he releases the 44Mag he figures on making all three available in a Variety Pack.

I tryed a 230 acp gold-dot with a cannalure crip groove put on the bullet so it would crimp and 10.5grs of Unique. Effective load. Performed better than silver tip WW- bullet which is mild. More power than a +P 45acp 230 load.

Could you share some details? Penetration and expansion numbers? Weight retention? 25 yard accuracy?

Mike is taking orders on his 45Colt and 44Mag ammo now. He expects to begin shipping 45Colt late the week of August 8th and is shipping a 240gr 44Mag load now.

What are the 45 Colt loads? Don't know what to order if I don't know what they are.
