>45 Super Cartridge?

I have been reading some references to this cartridge, but no hard data,

What cartridge case is used? What performance is achieved? Are modifications to the weapon required to use it>

Just thought of something else. I think that Corbon was producing .45 Super ammo, but then Ace copywrited the name and wanted Corbon to pay a royalty so Corbon said forget it, and developed their own cartridge. I am not sure if that was the 400 Corbon or something else.

Someone jump in and correct me if I am wrong.

CORBON has never loaded the 45SUPER, nor do we have any plans to do so.
TRITON did load the 45SUPER but has dropped it from what I have been told. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong on this.
TEXAS AMMUNITION does load the 45SUPER and from what I'm hearing has done a crackerjack good job of it.

When I read these articles on 45 Super, a great big, "AHAH!" went off in my head. Then I woke up in a puddle

Triton doesn't make .45 Super anymore, they got crossways with Ace Custom. They now make IMO a better round called the 450 SMC, which is basically the reinforced case of the .45 Super but with a smaller primer pocket that uses small rifle primers. The original design cut a 451 Detonics case to .45 ACP OAL.
Yes, in fact I do have a 454... in more ways than one.
