Normal Colt .45 loadings are roughly equivalent to a modern .45 ACP, so there is really no point in using the larger rimmed round over the easier to work with .45 ACP. You do get speciality hot loadings of the .45 Colt that are up there with a .44 Magnum, but if you want this kind of power you would just use a .44 as it is much more available along with being chambered in some semi-autos like the Desert Eagle.
