How "hot" of a load can a Bond Arms Derringer 45/410 take?

Can a Bond Arms 45colt / 410 derringer take "ruger only" 45 colt loads. I know it would probably be too painful to try, but I am just curious.

I shot an over/under pistol but it was not a Bond, and had slightly longer barrels. With .45 Colt factory and/or .410 factory shells it shot fine. But I loaded some of my handloads (.45 Colt) and it was brutal, but didn't phase the gun. Don't remember the exact load I used, but it was loaded with a 260 gr. JHP.

I remember the barrels shot to a point about eight feet apart on the berm down range at about 110 yards. This just out of curiosity.

And with .410 shells could not knock over a 7.62 x 39 case stood upright at 7 1/2 yards.

The thing about the Bond Arm that gets me curious is that they make a 44 mag version, so it got me wondering if the 45 colt was made to the same levels as the 44 mag
