The ammunition was weak because the armies using those revolvers didn't need anything more powerful, not having to fight Afghanistan tribesmen or Native American warriors who didn't seem to know that they should just fall down if they were shot like "civilized" white soldiers.

I have no doubt the revolver designs would have been scaled up for use with the .45 Colt or any other "powerful" round had that been thought necessary.
