There was someone on the Cast Bullet forum that did the same thing, except he used a sledgehammer to apply force.  (no wild swings now, just a succession of heavy taps.)

FWIW, a Lee Krag Shellholder (#5)works just fine with Webley brass.  It is what Lee puts in the .455 die set.  Also the same shellholder in the .303 sets, go figger.

FWIW, if you ever want to order a holster for your Webley, custom or off the shelf, specify a Ruger Redhawk.  Perfect fit, and no "whut?" from the maker.

I  use that Lee #5 shellholder for Schofield brass.

I have 2x shaved, a MK V, & a New Service. Prefer the MK V, MK V NCOWS acceptable.

Just to resurrect an old thread for Major 2, but also to let Jack know I picked up some .455 Colt brass from Buffalo Arms, and have been happily loading it with Black Powder for the MK 1**.  Great fun!

Thanks Drydock  :D

I have scoured the net looking , can't believe I miss this thread right here at our own Cas City....
re-read it and recall I had seen it ( Rattlesnake Jacks fine illustrations jogged my memory )

I'm new to the fold though, reading all I can find.  I have Springfield Slims bullets , I ordered 45 Auto Rim ( I do have 1/2 moon clips too )
I'm just trying to nail down my Powder & charge ,  I have Trail Boss and Red Dot ...wanted to get some Unique but it is out of stock everywhere I tried... :(

 My LGS/R has used me as an old gun expert to convince a young pup, in his 20's that his gunshow special was not a 44Mag,(like had been told) but a shaved Mk 6.

For my shaved cylinders, I use 45 autorim with 200 gr lead bullet &. 3.9 gr Greendot. Very pleasant to shoot, very little recoil. Have 2x with shaved cylinders, a Wesley Mk5, & a Colt New Service.

A shaved MK VI https://www.gunbroker.com/item/878158039

That went at a reasonable price in the current market.  Wonderful barrel on it.

Here's a shaved MK 1 that the seller has no clue.  https://www.gunbroker.com/item/879016748   I sent  him a note, bet I get a self righteous denial.  But it's easy to see in the  photo's, might scare off a lot of buyers.

Every once in a great while someone shows some sense.  Mk 1s are my favorite Webleys, very lucky to have the one I have.

Started to inventory guns, day 2 came across a New Service in 45, with British proof marks. Need to take a closer look.

I imagine discovering a gun in your collection, you had forgotten you had is unique.
Almost, like acquiring it all over again.   :D
