Yup, I saw.

 

Looking for some cheaper used.  Just trying out these to see if I want to switch from my 45 Long Colt.

 

Thanks

How many do you need?

Thanks

Ethan,

If you already shoot .45 colt,how about cutting some down to C45S ?If you don't like the cartridge you haven't invested much to find out.

Lots of ways to cut down 45 Colt to C45S.  This is the way I did it.

If you just need a few to try them out for a revolver, use a tubing cutter to shorten a 45 colt case.  It won't be exact.  You can then load the case using a 45 colt base plate and 45 ACP dies that have a taper crimp.  The taper crimp is more forgiving with brass that has slightly different lengths.  If you get some 160 grain bullets, that would be your least recoiling load.  If you like them, then you can get the Starline brass. 

 

However, I bet some cowboys in your area will give you some to try them out.  That's the best option.  You'll start with a known load and can evaluate it from there.

PM me if you'd like a some cut downs to try. They are easy to make, but I would absolutely run all through a case trimmer after cutting. Rough cut to .900+ length and final trim to .898 { 45 ACP length}.
