Various - Country .45s (8-Track Cartridge)

Cases can be made from 45 Colt or auto rim by cutting down the rim and trimming to length. Staying with the British rounds there is a Webley automatic. The British Navy adopted the cartridge and a auto pistol in Unfortunately, it was not a satisfactory round because of its low power.

The case is slightly longer then our 45 auto but has a lighter load. One load was a grain bullet at about FPS, which the military used. It lasted only a short period of time and was discontinued after WW-I. While the case is the same as the 45 auto, the rim is very thick in order to work in those revolvers.

Some Webley revolvers that are modified can also shoot this round. Loading data and the 45 dies are the same as the auto though cast bullets are generally preferred. It also has the ability to feed WC type of bullets making it good for some hunting. As for factory ammo, Double Tap makes it and some Remington ammo can be found. Starline makes the brass and as with all of their products, the quality is good and priced reasonably.

The 45 Schofield was introduced because the US military wanted a single action revolver break open and the 45 Colt case was too long. When it was opened, the Colt cases would not come completely out which slows down the reloading process. Therefore, the Schofield case is shorter with a slightly larger rim to enhance extraction, which is important during a battle. The factory loads produced from to FPS with a to grain and was loaded with both black and smokeless powder.

It is popular with cowboy shooters as they use light loads and the shorter Schofield case makes it easier to achieve that. Starline makes the brass saving you from trimming 45 Colt cases. The 45 Colt came out in and was adopted by the military and used until The 45 Colt is one of the great cartridges having been in continues use since making it years and more popular than ever.

It has been chambered in everything from derringers to rifles. The loads run from black powder to some that will equal or exceed any 44 magnum round offered.

In , the US military dropped the 45 caliber rounds in favor of the 38 Long Colt a decision they regretted. It became obvious that the 38 rounds did not do an effective job as the natives were hacking our soldiers apart with machetes while being repeatedly shot with the 38 caliber rounds.

The 45 short auto, an obscure round is virtually the same as the 45 Gap. The short was made because some countries do not allow civilians to possess a military caliber. Therefore, they took the 45 auto and shortened it by 1 millimeter to comply with the law. It gives the same ballistics as a 45 auto which makes one wonder what was its purpose. Prerecorded stereophonic music cartridges were available, and blank cartridges could be used to make recordings at home, but the format failed to gain popularity.

Program starts and stops were signaled by a one-inch-long metal foil that activates the track-change sensor. Bill Lear had tried to create an endless-loop wire recorder in the s, but gave up in He would be inspired by Earl Muntz's four-track design in Inventor George Eash invented a cartridge design in , called the Fidelipac cartridge.

Fidelipac cartridges nicknamed "carts" by DJs and radio engineers were used by many radio stations for commercials, jingles, and other short items. Eash later formed Fidelipac Corporation to manufacture and market tapes and recorders, as did several others, including Audio-Pak Audio Devices Corp. There were several attempts to sell music systems for cars, beginning with the Chrysler Highway Hi-Fi of the late s which used discs.

Entrepreneur, marketer and television set dealer Earl "Madman" Muntz of Los Angeles, California , however, saw a potential in these "broadcast carts" for an automobile music system. In , he introduced his Stereo-Pak four-track cartridge stereo system and tapes, mostly in California and Florida. The four tracks were divided into two "programs", typically corresponding to the two sides of an LP record , with each program comprising two tracks read simultaneously for stereo two channel sound playback.

He licensed popular music albums from the major record companies and duplicated them on these four-track cartridges, or "CARtridges", as they were first advertised. The major change was to incorporate a neoprene rubber and nylon pinch roller into the cartridge itself, rather than to make the pinch roller a part of the tape player, reducing mechanical complexity.

Lear also eliminated some of the internal parts of the Eash cartridge, such as the tape-tensioning mechanism and an interlock that prevented tape slippage. By doubling the number of tracks from 4 to 8, [8] the recording length doubled to 80 minutes.

In , Lear's aircraft company constructed demonstration Stereo 8 players for distribution to executives at RCA and the auto companies. The popularity of both four-track and eight-track cartridges grew from the booming automobile industry. With the backing of the U. The 8-track format gained steadily in popularity because of its convenience and portability. Home players were introduced in that allowed consumers to share tapes between their homes and portable systems.

By the late s, the 8-track segment was the largest in the consumer electronics market and the popularity of 8-track systems for cars helped generate demand for home units. With the availability of cartridge systems for the home, consumers started thinking of eight-tracks as a viable alternative to 33 rpm album style vinyl records , not only as a convenience for the car.

This was seized upon by businessman Earl Muntz of Los Angeles, California, who introduced his Stereo- Pak 4-track CARtridge system, using licensed music from the major record companies.

Having gained some success in his home state, Muntz expanded his operation, striking a deal with US entrepreneur Bill Lear to have his system fitted into his Learjets. However, Lear was unimpressed with the build quality and asked one of his team, Richard Kraus, to develop a more robust system. Kraus engineered the 8-track system, reducing the complexity and addressing reliability issues by incorporating a more efficient mechanism into the cartridge itself.

Branded the Stereo 8 system, it meant that eight tracks could be recorded, usually in four programmes of two tracks each. The trade-off for this greater capacity inside a standard cartridge was a slight loss of sound quality and an increase in background noise from the narrower tape width.

On the plus side, by using a short length of conductive foil at the splice joint on the tape, the Stereo 8 could switch between tracks automatically, a real benefit for in-car entertainment systems. However, with most music designed to be listened to over two sides of an LP, the Stereo 8 cartridges often had to resort to tinkering with running orders and even dividing songs to make them fit the four-programme format. Longer tracks were frequently split into two parts, shorter songs repeated or long passages of silence inserted into the running order.

Lear had a long association with the car manufacturer, going back to the 30s when he had been party to the founding of Motorola, which provided in-car entertainment systems for Ford. The following year, Ford rolled out the 8-track as an option right across its range of vehicles, making it the must-have accessory for new car buyers.

Arguably even more importantly, Ford allowed their retail network to retrofit the system at dealerships nationwide, creating an aspirational demand for the 8-track. A substantial 65, of the players were installed in the first year alone, all manufactured by the Motorola Corporation. The early Learjet Stereo 8 player was designed with simple controls, making it easy to play tapes in the car without the driver taking his or her eyes off the road.

Ford, in turn, got RCA Victor to commit to producing titles from its current catalogue on Stereo 8 cartridges, immediately generating a massive selection of music for nearly every taste from classical to psychedelia, so early adopters had plenty of choice.
