For your 'objective' may I suggest the 38Spl, 357Mag or Max. Ive had an H&R Shikari 44Mag years ago and liked it, never got one of the 45C Classic Carbines, but have had the H&R 357Mag for a few years now and found much happiness. My loads run mostly 38Spl equiv. 'WC' level but Ive been all the way up to low end 357Max with the bullet seated out in the longgg throat (just to know how high I can go 'if' I needed to).
The barrel shank may take that smaller dia. the the 38 class chamber better. Maybe check what it would cost to have JES rebore/rechamber one of the new '85s for you. Likely way cheaper than rebarreling.
Anyone who wants to fundamentally change the USA is not a Patriot.
Many things in life are negotiable but not Honor or Integrity.
