No. It might take that kind of abuse for a little while but .45 Super will beat it to death pretty quickly. Stick to 9mm and .40 or standard pressure .45 ACP.

Thanks, I didn't think so.

Beretta doesn't seem to have any high powered pistols available. i can't even find one in .357 sig.

357 SIG isn't an especially "powerful" round; really no more so than 9mm +P or .40 S&W. 9x23 Winchester is considerably more powerful, but won't work in a gun that doesn't have a long enough recoil stroke to accommodate .45 ACP/10mm/.38 Super (>1.25"), such as the large-frame Glocks, CZ derivatives, and 1911s.
