Howdy!

.45 Long Colt.

Although some say his was/is a .44-40 because he appears to be wearing just one size cartridge in his belt in the famous tin type and .45 Colt does not work in a Winchester. Others say it is not really his Colt because he is not wearing a separate belt for revolver and rifle as was common in 1881-ish and would have had a .44-40 (.44 WCF) revolver.
