I have a Super Blackhawk in 4&5/8"

Gary knows best and my experience is pretty much the same. What I have found is that if you're staying within SAAMI specs or close to them with 300gr. hard casts, the Super Blackhawk is fine as-is. But... Those Buffalo Bore and Underwood 340gr. +P+ loads are too much for repeated use in my humble opinion. They have pressure way over SAAMI specs. In that case, I'd go 5-shot conversion like Gary said. Or you can go with a few other options that I have found hold up to those loads, being Redhawk, Super Redhawk, or the BFR. Again, this is just my two cents, and I defer to Gary as he has much more experience than I do.
