Has anyone come across any of the 45 super brass? If so how much less volume does it have?

My concern is loading a standard charge for 45acp in the (probably) smaller internal volume 45 super brass. I can see a problem developing.

Well, it looks like I need to be looking for super brass in my acp brass. I normal sort only by headstamp of manufacture. Now I need to look that each says acp not super.

Such is life.

I use .45 Super brass exclusively for forming into .400 Cor-Bon. I start REAL low and work up, using a chrony with every increase in charge. So far, nothing but good results. I get mine, virgin, from Starline. (Damn, I liked the way that sounded!!)
