Here's one, and cheap as well. I've got one but not ported and paid about $20 more on Ebay.
Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

Thanks for the information.
I registered at the location, since e-bay quit the business, etc. of firearms that is the place to go for auctions it seems.
I am going to bid on that barrel;) or I might just buy it outright:what:

I just got my dies brass and bullets and the load data is really sparse.
While setting up the loader, I seated a couple of bullets to test the OAL. Then I ran them through my 1911 and found that I could not crimp tight enough to keep the bullet from getting set back when chambering. If I screwed the die down any more, the shoulder would buckle and bulge the case. I have read that the case should not be expanded after resizing because of the short neck. So I will not expand the neck when creating my loads.
The best I could do was to seat the 155gr bullet at the max .45 length of 2.275. Setback was acceptable with the max OAL, only .05 to .06.
When I go shooting, I will take my calipers and measure a cartridge that has been chambered after a shot so I can see if there is any greater setback.

I will be loading up the 400 myself. I found this for starters.
I am looking forward to shooting this round. It is really not that much different than a 10 mm. But I do like the flexability of it for the Glock 21..
Now have a 10 mm barrel and a 400 Corbon barrel (coming) to go along with the 45.:what:

Thanks HQ. I have seen those. Much of the data is old, but still good. I guess the 400 corbon is just not too popular.
Does anyone know if one use the same 1911 .45 frame/ejector with a .40 S&W slide and barrel? Or does the ejector have to be moved inboard more?

The .400 CorBon uses .40 bullets but the case is a necked down
.45 ACP thus it is a Barrel swap using the same frame and magazines.

Blindjustice, I dont know if you were replying to my question or not. I know what a 400 corbon is, I just loaded 100 of them. I may not have been clear on what I wanted to know, so I will rephrase the question.
Does the 1911 frame in .45 ACP configuration work with a .40 s&w slide? Or does the ejector have to be moved closer to the center?

Hot brass that is a good question. In the Glock both the 10 mm (40) and 45 work fine, but in the 1911 I am not sure.

Can't you just reduce the diameter of the expander ball?
That would leave the mouths of your sized cases "tighter."

Oh, that's the question...
Well the .40 S & W was created to put a Semi-Auto round that had the same overall length as the 9mm so that it would work with existing platforms already designed for that length cartridge - the .45 ACP is longer as is the .38 Super which came out in the 1911 platform long before a 1911 from colt was offered the 1950s in the COmmander in the 9 MM .
So, the other reason why the COlt 1911 has not been offered in the
.40 S&W offering? Hey, COlt and S & W have been batting it about since the mid 19th century you think COlt is going to chamber a COlt in a round with a S & W suffix in their 1911 package.... hahahahahaha
