I already shooted a Colt 45ACP pistol and the feeling was fun, Is it the same with a rifle?
The Rifle shoots the 45 Long colt which is a pistol cartridge The 44-40 was one as well The 45 ACP Auto was made for the 1911 colt Semi Auto pistol later it was chambered for the Thompson Sub machine gun As well as many other model sub machine guns. The 45 long colt is a straight wall rimmed case the 45 acp is a rimless case much shorter case then the 45 L.C. None of these cartridge kick more like a soft push against the shoulder. Remember they started out
as a black powder cartridge's not much kick with black powder more of a push Now the modern smokeless powder loads will have more of a kick then a push . A quick Note on these older /early cartridge's the fist two Number states the
caliber the second two states the amount of black powder used in the case. 44-40- 45-70- 32-20 - 25-20 ect.
The 44Mag is a stretch out 44 special 44-40 black powder cartridge 44 Mag using smokeless Powder much more kick & powerful then 44-40 or 44 special.
Any of these cartridges are not bad to shoot in a Rifle The 44 mag in a short barrel pistol is a different story .
