"The problem with that is that the .45 Schofield was commonly called one of several things, but it was never called the .45 Colt or .45 Short Colt."

Some commercial makers of the .45 Government (.45 Schofield) used the .46 Colt head bunter, so they are marked ".45 Colt". The Army didn't get confused since after 1874 they never issued .45 Colt at all, only .45 Government.
