    Under small bores Heritage Rough Rider lists their .22 revolvers. Under big bore they list their .45s and .357 magnums.
    Searching Bud's for big bore lists those Rough Riders and Derringers of various calibers.

    Thanks. The guy that did it was an interesting fellow, had worked at Colt as a custom engraver after the war (WW2). He was an announcer for "The Louisiana Hay Ride", a popular radio program in the 50s and gave Elvis his first radio break. He'd retired in Seadrift, Texas and did this work at age 91. Every morning he got up and walked down to the bay front and wade fished for several hours before starting his work. He passed away some years back. My life was richer for meeting him.

    I sort of have this thing for single actions which also include cap and ball. No, I don't carry 'em except as woods guns/hiking guns, but they're just fun weapons and they have advantages in strength vs weight, light on the hip for as strong as they are.

    Oh, and I own 3 NAAs, one of which is a Super Companion cap and ball.

    The biggest bore revolver (and only revolver I currently own) is this bad boy right here...



    I'm pretty sure it's as big as I'm willing to go in terms of bore diameter.

    You can do Colt 45. I don't think it's set up for +P though. You can also do 45 ACP

    The Taurus Judge Magnum is chambered for .45LC/.410 Bore 3" Shells. It can't fire .45 ACP (you're thinking of the S&W Governor) because the Cylinder isn't milled for the necessary clips to do so. However, although it isn't rated for +P ammo, it has been done without any reports of damage or KABOOMs, (which really isn't too surprising seeing as it's built on a modified Tracker 44 frame) so I wouldn't be afraid to carry it with me in the wilderness loaded with +Ps on the off chance that I should run into a bear.
    As it stands, I keep it at my bedside loaded with Federal Premium .410 Handgun 000 Buck 3" Shells for Home Defense, although I also have some Barnes VOR-TX 200gr .45LC JHPs on standby.

    I would never push the envelope of the Judge with +P .45 Colt. If I wanted to do that, I'd get the Raging Judge. Better to be safe than one armed and blind.

    I would never attempt to fire .45LC +P ammo under ordinary circumstances, I'm just saying that if for whatever absurd reason I were going into the wilderness and had nothing better, I wouldn't be afraid to load it with +Ps on the off chance I was attacked by a bear.

    The Judge isn't rated for +P ammo, but it has been done before by multiple folks on YouTube, (one guy actually when through a whole 50rd box of Buffalo Bore .45LC +P, who claims that he took it to a gunsmith afterwards who told him it was undamaged afterwards) ergo it would seem that at the very least it can at least handle a few of them, so in a pinch it could be used with +Ps.

    That being said, I have no reason, desire, nor even the ability to go hiking in bear country, and even if I did I'd most likely use a hardcast SWC standard pressure .45LC load over +Ps. For the most part, I was speaking hypothetically.
