I have not tried, but also share an interest in hearing about this.

Uh...AFAIK, .45 super is not for use in .45 ACP handguns, unless you have a conversion kit...

Don't be a 'bubba'. If you want to try the 45 Super, get an all-steel 1911, 26# springs and shok buffs and fire away ( a recoil reducer might help as well)...

BEWARE: sharp back and front straps will remove hand skin...

I have fired Super in my XD45 Tactical. Not much because I don't want to batter my XD. I still don't know the rating of the stock XD spring but I do plan to test with a 28# or 30# spring. If the brass isn't thrown too far then I'll feel OK to fire limited amounts of Super in my XD.

If you want to shoot alot of Super then you're better off with a steel 1911. But most people won't shoot alot of Super anyway.

Don't know about the XD, but I know you don't have to get an all-steel 1911 to fire .45 Super. A G21 with a 24# recoil spring handles .45 Super just fine.

Add me to the curious list. I have read anecdotal reports that XDs were ok to shoot Super, but any 'official' (researched and tested) list was either old or only listed a couple of guns.

I doubt I would use Super for self- or home-defense because I fear overpenetration. It would be fun to try. However I might keep a few rounds just in case indestructo-zombies attack or something.
