.45 Colt is a type of ammunition for firearms. It is classified as a (P)istol caliber, and was originally designed for the Colt Single Action Army.

.45 Colt is pronounced forty-five Colt.

This caliber may also be known as .45 Long Colt or .45 LC (an obsolete designation to differentiate it from the shorter .45 Schofield - which is not featured in the game), more rarely 11.43x33mm R, or simply .45, though this last designation is not recommended, as there are many other chamberings that can be described as .45 caliber. It should also not be confused with .45 ACP.

.45 Colt can be seen as a shorter version of .454 Casull; both cartridges have the exact same dimensions other than case length. In turn, this allows many .454 Casull firearms to be loaded with .45 Colt, increasing the versatility of these firearms.

There are 6 .454 Casull firearms than can also accept .45 Colt:
