Now there are guns such as the 460 s&w that state you can shoot a 454 or even a 45lc out of it. It's obvious how they would chamber and fire, but I wonder... what keeps the bullet on these shorter rounds from tilting in the unoccupied chamber, and potentially jamming before reaching the barrel? Is it a case of "close enough"? It just seems to me there would be potential for this or that at least acurracy or performance would have to suffer.

it looks like two colt 1911s taped together...
A short study of ballistics will show that two large subsonic .45 bullets coming out of their barrels so close together will affect eachother in flight so you'll end up with less accuracy than a standard single barrel .45.
That would be in addition to the huge weight and recoil.
this is just a movie prop surely?
