Get a time-machine...

Seriously, try here; .

The .400Corbon like the .40Super(my favorite caliber) is a wildcat now.

Ammunition? Or are you looking for a conversion barrel or something else?

Some ammo:

Are you just looking for ammunition, or are you looking for a gun chambered for .400 Corbon? If your buddy already has the gun and is looking for ammo, Corbon is his only option unless he's willing to start hand loading. If, on the other hand, your friend is considering buying a gun in this caliber, I'd encourage him to look at a 10mm Auto instead. When loaded to its full potential by makers like Buffalo Bore, Double Tap, and Underwood, 10mm can easily meet or surpass the ballistics of .400 Corbon (even Corbon's 10mm isn't that far behind .400 Corbon) and, while not the most popular cartridge in the world, every major U.S. ammo maker, including Winchester, Remington, Federal, Hornady, Corbon, and CCI/Speer, still offers at least one 10mm loading.

Convert to .45 ACP or reload.

He will pretty much be at the mercy of Corbon's production.
