I was given the name of a manufacturer of a 2 and 4 cavity .455 caliber
Webley MK VI.       Company Name is Mehec
I contacted them and they still have a few of these molds available.
The price is $95 Euros and $135 Euros, includes shipping.
This converts to approximately $100 and $145 US at today's rate of
exchange. Of course this will vary as days markets flucuate.
I'll be ordering in the coming days and start reloading my Webley
ammunition with the my bullets rather buying them elsewhere.
I though this would be of interest to the others here who expressed
interest in my posting earlier regarding Webley .455 reloading.

They make good molds I hear and if you take care of it, it'll last forever.

I would think any bullet for the .45 Colt would work in the Webley, is that not the case?

I have a S&W H.E.2nd mdl that was chambered in .455 Eley. I tried .454 bullets with no luck but bought a LEE 456-220-1R mold. It has a .456 band between the lube grooves and it works great in my S&W. Mine had the cylinder shaved so chambered for 45 colt now. These molds cost $22 and worth trying. I've cast abut 1500 bullets and it's holding up fine.

That's interesting. I believe that Lee bullet is designed for black powder cap and ball revolvers, great to see it worked for this application.

I was about to trade it off! I shot it at seven yards off a rest and it was 1 ragged hole.

Just goes to show that sometimes innovative thought and trying something different can yield great results.

A few years ago, I picked up an old Tranter revolver in some kind of .45 caliber (Webley? Eley? Adams?) It's in good shape and I practically stole it for what I payed, but I haven't shot it yet. Maybe I need to look into this Lee mold.
