If you are a handloader, you could try .454" bullets, and see how it works. I have a Smith .455 Hand Ejector that's been fitted with a M1917 cylinder. The Chamber mouths are .454" and the barrel groove diameter is .457". Loading .454" bullets, it shoots OK. Lots of post-war Colt Peacemakers have .452" bores and .455+" chamber mouths, and there's plenty of advocacy for loading bullets that sort of split the difference.
