It was one of the not-so-successful attempts to create a bottle-neck .40 caliber for the 1911. My memory is that the only charge is to install the bbl. I suspect the ballistics of the 10mm affected he popularity of the bottle-neck cartridge conversions. Let me know if you would like to sell the dies.

I ordered a barrel, nm link, link kit, and bushing from Sarco for $89 all in. Once it arrives, I will convert one of my 1911 Colts and report back. (I bought the die set.)

check out Sarco I believe they have the barrels for the 400 as for the brass like a needle in a haystack
Starline has cases available. I bought 500 pieces for $137. It is the small primer pocket variety. My research is that the small primer pocket cases are more robust, and the Starline cases are made from thicker 45+p cases.

The cases that are a real needle in a haystack are those for 9X25 Dillon (10mm necked to 9mm). That is my other project.

Bar-sto is making a six inch barrel in 9X25 Dillon to fit the five-inch slide on my Colt Delta Elite. There is a six-week lead time and the price is $295. Carbide dies are available from Dillon for $205 including tax and shipping.

Bar-sto does not list 9X25 Dillon barrels on their website, but if you call they will make one for you.
