All the posts here have good valid information that rings true!

I like your last suggestion... the .45 Colt.   Buy one in a Redhawk, and you'll get the ability to use bullets with a .500" Nose to Crimp length... then you can equal the performance of factory loaded .454 Casull with your handloads and the longer C.O.L. will preclude getting them mixed up and loaded into a gun that won't handle those pressures.  You'll have a great companion gun to the Marlin, and the ease of component availablility.  

Also the initial cash outlay will be considerably less than any model of .454 offered today!

This probably won't be a popular opinion, but that's all it is... an opinion, a very biased one!  FWIW

God Bless,
