History of proof Cartridges: Proofs are used to verify or "proof" the mechanical strength of a firearm before it leaves the factory. The bright dark reddish wash or dye on the base (head stamp) and projectile with nickel case is the U.S. industry standard of identifying these types of cartridges. Proofs are not normally available to the public.


History of the 45 Automatic Cartridge: The 45 Automatic, a/k/a .45 Auto, and .45 ACP, invented by John Browning and introduced in 1911 for the Colt/Browning Model 1911 semi-auto pistol. This is a great caliber, and has stood the test of time and is still one of the most popular calibers today after over 100 years, as well as the 1911 pistol now made by 100s of manufacturers. I feel it is truly the best military and self-defense pistol ever produced, if not a bit hard on recoil.
