    A quick look indicates it was trying to do what the .357 sig did for the .40.

    A .45 case necked down to a .40 cal bullet. I hope your a reloader, or can get a different barrel for the thing.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    It's basically a .45 necked down to a .40 caliber. The idea is to make it easy to convert a .45 to a .40 caliber cartridge with performance similar to a 10mm. For a lot of guns all it takes is a barrel swap. It never really caught on.

    You may have trouble finding factory ammo. If you handload, you can make .400 Cor-Bon cases out of .45 brass. If you don't want to mess around with such an oddball caliber, it probably wouldn't be hard to convert the gun to .45.

    Swap the barrel if you want standard .45ACP.
