Where was this made?
It was made in Canada, by the Dominion Cartridge Company.
Made for RCN which had several hundred 45 LC cal New Service Colts bought in 1940.

Thanks for the information
Does anyone know the bullet weight and/or specified ballistics for this loading? I have only seen this with the “DC 44” headstamp. Do other years exist?
bullet weight is 250.5 grains
powder weight is 7.0 grains
Thanks for that information!
This is what the Dominion box looks like. (Not my image and blatantly stolen off of the 'net, but don’t have my camera handy now to take a pic of my example.)
Thanks for the box photo
