Besides the 38-45 Auto (45-38 Auto Pistol, 45-38 Clarke)
Are there any other wildcats based on a necked down 45 acp?

About 10 years ago Dick Casull was working on a variation of that for a 1911 clone he was tinkering with in his new shop in Afton WY. I saw it once in Max's Guns in Idaho Falls Idaho, I was busy with something else at the time and didn't pay much attention.

.400 Cor Bon is the one I'm aware of.

https://dakotaammo.net/shop/product_info.php?cPath=21_39&products_id=53

Available in 135 gr, 155 gr, and 165 gr.

Usually only need to change the barrel out. Les Baer makes .400 Cor Bon pistols, conversions, and dual caliber (.400 Cor Bon/.45 ACP) pistols. You can use the same .45 ACP magazines. Sig took the .400 Cor Bon concept and made the .357 Sig off the .40 S&W.

A few years ago the .400 Corbon idea blew my mind, but I think I'll just get a 10mm.

The cartridge is the .38-45 Clerke; also called the .38 Safe Stop. The .38 Casull is the same basic cartridge loaded to a higher pressure.

DWFan: thats it!!! I remember seeing it and overhearing a description when I was In Max's, but I think I was taken by a pristine Winchester Model 12 Featherweight he had taken in. I took it home with me(model 12 FWT).

IRT JTQ: I forgot about the 400 corbon.

IRT DWFan: It’s been years since I read about it so I forgot the spelling. :D

IRT Jim Watson: never heard of either of those.

.40 Super

Pretty sure .40 Super is based on a cut down .45 Win Mag case.

True, .45 win Mag brass can be used to make cases for it, but I'm pretty sure Triton made a proprietary case when they developed it and considered it a wildcat of the .45ACP. There used to be drop in kits available to convert the 1911 platform to it.
