Where can I find projectiles for .455 webley? I've checked midway and powder valley and can't seem to find .455/.456 bullets. Any suggestions?

I shoot these with Red Dot/Unique/HP38

They are nominally .454 but I find most measure closer to .456. But that extra diameter may just be the waxy lubricant that covers the bullets. They really gunk up the dies but are quit accurate, probably because they have hollow bases that can flair out to grab the rifling.

I loaded those Remington bullets as well in my .455. They will work.

measure the chamber mouths of your cylinder. Many of the original .455 revolvers I've measured (and the one I shoot all the time) have chamber mouths which measure around .450" - .451", and the groove diameters are around .453". There is no advantage in squeezing a very large bullet through a tight chamber mouth, and I find that the standard .452" .45 bullets shoot very well, indeed. I like the 255 gr. moly-coated RN hard cast bullets, which shoot very well, indeed.
