An original 1895 Webley RIC model 83

This is a Webley 83 in .455 Webley in good and original condition. I'm obtaining cases for it from 45 LC ones that I cut to just 1 in. I load it with about 20 gns black powder or 4 gns of Red Dot that normally give me about 650 fps with 200 gns lee round nose bullets.

A moderate load that could be shot for fun with an old warrior without risk of damage.

Did you have to turn the rims thinner?

Just with Winchester cases. But I'm normally using Magtechs and these ones don't need it for this particular revolver.
