Probably my favorite revolver is a Blackhawk (or better yet, Bisley Blackhawk) .45 Colt convertible model. I suggest the convertible model because for just a little extra, you get a .45 ACP cylinder so you have two cartridges and a wide range of loads and power levels available.

You can load the .45 Colt warm, to meet and even exceed the 44 Magnum, and with the ACP cylinder you can not only shoot .45 ACP, but also the more potent .45 Super. There is even an article on "Ruger only" .45 ACP loads that mimic the 460 Rowland.

Very versatile and affordable and a LOT of fun to shoot, a lot of bang for your buck. Ruger offers the convertible Blackhawk .45 Colt/.45 ACP in blued and stainless with 4 5/8" - 7 1/2" barrels. There are some 5.5" stainless Bisley convertible models too, I just picked one up.

so close.

My wife (while I was in the car) pulled in to the local gun store by mistake today. I managed to convince her that it was a sign, and if they had a SS blackhawk/SBH I should get it. She actually agreed, but it was not there. There was one Sa ruger, but it was blued and not at all what I wanted.
Apparently they need to make room for AR's and other things that might not be around in a while.
maybe next time.
