Ross' 45 Colt load used a 350 grain Keith style SWC loaded up around 50,000 psi IIRC. Not much difference than today's 454 Casull.
Yep. Definitely not a 45 Colt cowboy load. He was using a specialty converted revolver, and his loading basically was equivalent to 454 Casull. Seyfried has stated that the 454 Casull is not needed as the 45 Colt can be loaded to do anything the 454 Casull can, provided the particular gun is strong enough to handle it.

Equal to .454 Casull? Then it is a .45 Magnum for sure.

Just be careful of the guns you try it in. But yes, the 45 Colt can be loaded up to what the 454 Casull can do. If I remember right, Seyfried's gun was a five shot conversion. 45 Colt is a very impressive round to be sure.

A five-shot .45 LC revolver has a lot of meat around each chamber, that's right.
