    A fellow last night at the range was shooting a bottle necked cartridge from his SIG 220, he said he had a drop in BARSTO barrel that was ported and the brass was made from .45 acp. Bullet wt. was 165 grs. I remembered everything but the caliber, anyone know what bottle necked round can be made from .45 acp? It might have been .400 Corbon but I can't recall what he said it was. It was incredibly accurate, producing 1 inch or less groups at 25 yards.

    I don't guess if you went to the Barsto catalog or website that they might tell you what barrels they make for that model.

    Yes, I did that. What I'm trying to find out is what bottle necked cartridge is made from .45 acp brass. I think it's probably a .400 Corbon - but I'm not sure.

    Well, there is .400 Cor-Bon, .40 Super, .38 Casull...

    That's the Bar-Sto barrel, not the caliber, at work.

    Yeah, if you have a gunsmith properly fit a BarSto barrel into a half-way decent pistol, you're going to have a pretty accurate gun on your hands... Even if it's the supposedly not-so-accurate 40S&W.

    He said this was a drop in barrel - he took it out of the box and replaced the stock barrel in his 220.
