Boomsticks: A bleg.

I am looking for a 9x25 Dillon barrel for my Delta Elite. I just want to play around with loads that toss 115gr bullets at 1800fps from a pistol, mostly for the pyrotechnic excitement. I've spoken with Mike McNett as well as the folks at Storm Lake, but figured I'd turn to the lazyweb as well and see if anyone has a lead I can follow up. You never know...

Could one not find a .38 super barrel and ream it to 9x25 dillon?

Question is, is the 10mm breachface going to work with a 9mm case? May need to start with a different slide, and maybe ejector also. Will the mags fit the frame? I'm assuming the 9x25 uses the standard 9x19 case base.

9x25 Dillon is a 10mm cartridge case necked down to take a 9mm bullet. Think of it as a .357sig on steroids....

115gr. bullet @ 1800fps from a Delta Elite or a Glock 20.

Not to be toooooo obvious......but have you tried calling/emailing Mike Dillon? He designed the darn thing he might have a few lying around.

Whooops! My bad! Sorry, Tam, I should know better than to question your knowledge of the ins and outs of gun guts.
Hmmm, be interesting to see a side by side comparison to the Casull-3800. I'm curious what differences they might show when both use the same length barrel, as the Casull gun comes stock with a 6".
124gr @ 1858fps 950lbsft
147gr @ 1735fps 982lbsft

I'm still waiting for a double stack modern pistol in the 7.62x25 caliber. With a solid copper hollowpoint bullet like the Barnes X-bullet, I think that would be a winner. 15+1 expanding bullets that would pierce soft body armor (if anybody thinks terrorists won't start wearing body armor to go on shooting sprees in malls and schools...).
