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.
Civilize them with a Krag . . .

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.
