    Full house .454 will get your attention.

    I’m with you, the .44’s, .45’s versatility and “shootability” work for me.

    Thing is, and I guess it's my faul because I didn't clarify, I'm looking at converting my 1911, because I have it already.

    Converting your existing 1911 to .460 will cause no problems regarding converting it back to .45 ACP.
    The process is barrel/bushing and springs.
    The .460 conversion will result in a much faster and heavier (if heavier is chosen) bullet than the ACP round.
    Trade off is substantially more recoil and accelerated pistol wear/battering.
    This is likely a non issue as you won’t have the round count with the .460 that you might have with the ACP rd- unless you’re Superman.

    Is anyone aware of any catastrophic failures of Springfield pistols, post conversion?

    My experience with +P .45 Colt has been limited to hogs and deer.
    I have recovered 310 gr cast bullets that have shot through 4’ of heavily muscled hog.

    If you are looking for maximum horsepower in a traditional sized handgun (this excludes the big S&W X frames), in a traditional/standard cartridge- the .44 mag or .45 Colt +P with heavy, cast bullets are at the top of the heap.
    After reading the article, I was somewhat confused, but I get your point now. Thank you.
