I said earlier that I didn't know why Colt called the cartridge(s) the .455 Eley instead of the .455 Webley. I mentioned the question to a friend yesterday and his reply may be the answer. He said that Eley didn't make guns, only ammo, and that Colt never would put the name of a competitor, even a foreign one, on its guns.
