2. I hear you on .454, I've long believed hot .45 Colt was good enough in a Ruger, I just mentioned it because it's safer to load a .45 Colt hot in a .454 chamber.
Presumably you're going to a single-shot pistol for the accuracy potential. Shooting a shorter cartridge than the gun is chambered for is going to throw away some of that accuracy potential. I'm not saying it's definitely guaranteed to make the gun shoot poorly, but you're more likely to get good accuracy from a cartridge that fits the chamber and doesn't require the bullet make a jump to get to the rifling.
