I was wondering if the .45 GAP bullet could be fired from a barrel chambered for a .45 ACP, the way a .38 SPL can be fired from a .357 MAG. Has anyone read any reports about it or tried it? If so, how did it work?
Since it headspaces on the mouth of the case, the cartridge would be too far into the chamber -- actually, maybe some guns could fire it since the extractor would be holding the case back against the slide -- but I sure wouldn't want to do that. And, as Bill said, I can't think of any benefit if it would work.
Just curious. I guess if you could find a GAP barrel to fit an ACP gun, it might give you an extra option, especially with smaller, lighter, compact .45's (or their owners) that can be a bit recoil sensitive. Sort of a .45 "lite".
