Ok I will apologize ahead of time for getting off the original topic, but I felt the need to clear up a few things as I see them. This is strictly my opinion but I believe it is a pretty good rule of thumb.
If you have a can that is labeled beans and you open it to find corn, that doesn't make the contents beans. It makes it a can of corn mislabeled as beans.
A 45 Colt cartridge loaded above SAAMI spec's for vintage Colt pistols and the like are no longer 45 Colt rounds. Just like a 38 special loaded to 357 magnum spec's is no longer a 38 special or a 44 special loaded to 44 magnum is no longer a 44 special or a 45-70 loaded to T/C/Ruger level is no longer a 45-70. Just because the head stamp says 45 Colt, that does not mean that is what it is. If you are saying that it is still a 45 Colt, then by all means load it up in that antique revolver and pull the trigger, just let me know in advance so I can be well clear of the blast sight, get the paramedics on the way and survive so I can direct them to the site of the carnage.
It's funny how folks talk about hot rodding one and comparing it to another limiting it to SAAMI spec's.
When you load one of these high powered 45colt rounds what percentage increase is there in pressure? If you are comparing two different calibers, wouldn't it be fair to increase the pressure by the same percentage, as well as have the same weight projectiles? How much difference is there in case capacity?
It's always more details to consider when comparing two things that are marginally different.
