    Old threads are where we do much of our learning, so don't be afraid to ask. Better than starting a whole new thread on the same thing all over again. I deleted the last forum that tried to discourage members from resurrecting dormant threads. Just...

    I'll find out when I do the first test crimp with these when they arrive. Even if it does form a roll, in the end I suspect the superior action of the collet crimper will likely win out and become my preferred choice. Had I known in the beginning I...

    You're right. I'm taking the dies, plus I've been offered a Lee collet crimper in .45 Colt that I can shorten to Webley length. Even if the set does roll crimp, the collet die has enough added advantage that it'll be worth it. Thanks for all your...

    Any shipping from the U.S. is expensive for us. Obviously, there's the exchange rate. Then, USPS parcel rates are huge compared to ours, which might be why so many U.S. sellers use those pirates at UPS (turn head and spit). They're despised here in...

    They're not interested. They're not even taking calls. "Leave your number. We'll call you." Emails have a minimum 2-week turn-around time.

    You're memory is correct. You're thinking of the Webley & Scott Automatic, the block-iest pistol ever seen (but most modern autos are approaching that stage). It was adopted by the Royal Navy just before WWI. It's most commonly thought of as a .455...

    I'm in Canada; Graf's isn't. Redding has a good name, though I'm not sure about their .455 dies specifically. Also, their product is pricey enough to start with, and by the time you add the crazy American postage rates.... There are Lee sets in...

    The Webley-Fosbery is still a revolver, just a self-cocking one. However, you do bring up an interesting point, since Webley did design and manufacture their own auto in .455, separate from the 1911. It was used by the Royal Navy. If this set is...

    Unfortunately, the seller has neither the ability nor interest to be able to perform any tests. He doesn't reload. Sorry, I should have been more explicit in my request. If I had possession of the dies, I wouldn't need to ask. I'm interested in...

    This is a first: a Google search turned up absolutely nothing on this set. RCBS no longer lists them, so they probably won't offer any info. At any rate, they're not responding to emails right now, so there's point trying. Does anyone have any...
