I got anywhere from 910 fps to 980 fps from my g36 with a 4 1/4 inch Jarvis barrel with the average being 950 fps or so.

Well, that's why. You have a 4 1/2" barrel versus the stock 3.78" barrel. 70fps velocity spread is a bit more than I have seen from Cor-Bon ammo. That's weird.

Turbo, I got a Wolff 21# for my G30 and like it. I don't notice less recoil, but that the slide impulse is less (slower) and there isn't a "bump" at the end of its travel like with the stock spring. My splits are only marginally faster .25's instead of .29's, so I'm not sure if this is statistically significant. Overall I'm happy with my purchase. Thanks for the advice.

BTW my friend tried the 21# spring in his G36 and now wants one.

Where is some reloading data for .45 super?

I talked to Corbon a while back

I was inquiring as to how much velocity reduction I could expect with the G30's 3.78" barrel versus the 5" test. They estimated 50-100 fps which seems in line with your experience. They also answered that their expectation for consistant JHP expansion was 900 fps minimum. I chose to go with the 185 gr. at 1150 - about 50 fps for my cary ammo.

Thanks for all the info. You have done a good service. Don't spend all that pay in one place

All I will ever own is a G36. When I take it on hikes, 45 super makes sense.

What do you think would be the right spring weight for a G36? And would a 36 be within reason as far as recoil control goes?

IMHO, there isn't an ideal spring weight for the G36 to shoot 45 Super. I don't think there is enough slide mass to tame the increased slide velocity.

Personally, I would install a 21lb. spring in your G36 and go for the 45 Super Tactical. According to Ace Custom Guns, this load is 100% safe in guns that are OK with shooting +P loads. The Tactical will give you an edge over any +P loads but won't batter your G36 like 45 Super will.

Check this out:

http://www.acecustom45.com

Although some loadings of 45 Super can be shot in 21# & 22# sprung guns, check out ALL the:

45 Super Gunsmith Fit Conversion Kits, at Ace Custom.

Note which guns are recommended for better supported aftermarket barrels, what spring weights and buffers are recommended, as well as how 45 Tactical & 45 Super are recommended by barrel length.

Glockfaq recommends a minimum of 24# recoil spring in Glock pistols:
(Note the pictures comparing the heavier slide dimensions of the 10mm vs. 45ACP slides!)

Better Glock solution

I agree with Turbo that Ace is building guns for $. I would not buy one of their kits, because I think you can build something better for less money.

None-the-less, their experience at building guns for 45 Super is unsurpassed. I would study the pages offered very seriously.

The problem with G-30 & G21 slides for 45 super is that they are too light weight. You would do better to start with the much heavier G29 and G20 slides (10mm).

Buy a G21 or G30 45 ACP barrel from KKM, Bar-Sto, or Jarvis in any length you desire. Have a G-29/G20 slide breach face opened up to fit the barrel. Add the improved spring assemblies as Turbo or Ace suggests. Change or alter the 10mm extractor for 45 dimensions.

If you are not capable of performing the needed alterations yourself, find a full service gunsmith or machine shop that will do the metal work needed before you start this project.

Note: 10mm magazines will feed 45ACP even without changing the follower or feed lips. You can find a slide assembly, or just alter a complete G29 or G20.

1911 considerations

http://www.realguns.com/archives/021.htm covers the mathematics. Background for this article is http://www.realguns.com/archives/020.htm

Wolff springs: www.gunsprings.com

The double stacked magazine Kimber, Para-Ordinance and Springfield models have some appeal if the parts can be found to handle the 45 Super. I find the common 1911 grip a bit slim for such recoil as is delivered with high power factor cartridges as 10mm or 45 Super.

HK USP45 considerations

The USP 45 has an interesting recoil system containing both a stout buffer spring and a 14 lb recoil spring.

I have read that HK has tested and approved 45 Super for the USP 45 with the recommendation that the recoil spring be changed each 500 rounds.

I think this unlikely, 14 lb spring is too light. Even though the buffer spring design allows for a broader power range of ammo to function reliably, 45 Super is too large a leap for the factory recoil system.

Fortunately www.gunsprings.com has a 20 lb recoil spring available, which should do nicely in conjunction with the standard buffer spring.

Also I note that the HKP7 recoil springs at Wolff are made up to 25 lb., they appear to be the same diameter as the USP 45 recoil spring. Perhaps this is a better option.

Turbo.......I find your posts about the .45 super interesting. Have you ever heard about the super being used in a Ruger P series pistol?? I'm guessing the gun should be strong enough.

BTW....Where in NEPA do you live?? I'm originally from the Scranton area.

The above loading data is only for handguns converted to .45 Super and only for use with Triton or Starline .45 Super cases. All loads were assembled with a Federal 150 primer to an OAL of 2.220". The velocities are from a 5" barrel.

Standard .45 Auto dies are utilized in loading the .45 Super. Various
brands of primers have been used in developing the .45 Super. The Federal
150 offers the best overall performance. The use of a magnum primer is not
necessary nor recommended. A heavy taper crimp is recommended when loading
the .45 Super.

WARNING: The .45 Super cartridge generates higher pressure levels than
conventional .45 Auto or .45 Auto +P ammunition. The .45 Super cartridge
case is constructed to withstand higher levels of pressure than
conventional .45 Auto brass. Under no circumstances should .45 Super
ammunition be used in a firearm not chambered or converted to .45 Super.

The use of .45 Super ammunition in anything other than an authorized .45
Super firearm or conversion will cause excessive wear and possible damage to the firearm and injury to the user. DO NOT attempt to use the above data in standard or +P .45 ACP cases.

Warning: Bullet selections are specific, and loads are not valid with substitutions of different bullets of the same weight. Variations in bullet length will alter net case capacity, pressure and velocity. Primer selection is specific and primer types are not interchangeable. These are maximum loads in my firearms and may easily be excessive in others. All loads should be reduced by 10%, and developed following safe handloading practices as represented in established reloading manuals produced by component manufacturers. Presentation of these loads does not constitute a solicitation for their use, nor a recommendation.
