All my life I have heard the expression "40-11" as well. I too am from eastern Kentucky, and I simply assumed that the expression was local. However, I have spent a considerable amount of time on coastal South Carolina and heard
the same expression there, meaning an undeterminable (but large) quantity.
Is this expression concentrated in the Eastern U.S., or is it used
