Thanks for another fine vignette about a gun that I'll likely never buy. It's great to get to see such things in action.

Being a cowboy action shooter myself it seems like it's got about the same kick as a soft .38Spl cowboy load.

I just bought a .455 Webley so you coming out with this is quite fortuitous.

I have both the Webley and the Enfield, to truly enjoy them, you need the 200 gr loads they were designed for. http://ows-ammo.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=0&products_id=286

I have one of the MK IV Webleys that was given to me by my brother. It's marked "War Finish" and it shows; it's pretty rough. The gun is definitely tight, though and doesn't show much use. The one brand of factory ammo I tried provided horrible accuracy and leaded the barrel. When I pulled a slug, it measured 0.355" so I suspect they went cheapo and used 9mm slugs.

I'm starting to handload for it now that I found a source of 0.361" bullets. I bought some of their 200 gr slugs, but they're a bit long for the cylinder. The originals were pretty stubby.

Anybody have a good source for 200 gr 0.361" bullets?
