The Hornady LEVERevolution 45 Colt Pistol Ammunition is one of the greatest cartridges of all time. The fact that it’s been around and has been popular since 1873 is an astounding feat by itself. That’s 135 years of popularity! In 2008, Hornady began producing the most technologically advanced 45 Colt ammunition in history.
Hornady engineers had a difficult task at hand to generate modern performance from a cartridge that was designed to be loaded to low pressures with black powder and fired in fragile — at least by today’s standards — revolvers. There are a number of companies who offer high performance 45 Colt ammunition but they are loaded to pressures that are unsafe in original 1873 Peacemakers or replicas.
The new LEVERevolution round is loaded to SAAMI spec pressure so it’s safe for all 45 Colt firearms, and the specially designed FTX bullet delivers exceptional terminal performance that makes it a great choice for hunting. If you want to take a classic 45 Colt out in the field and have 100% peace of mind that there’s no chance it will damage the gun — and deliver LEVERevolution performance you’ve come to trust — Hornady has the answer.
