Webley Reloading

I have a very nice Mk VI Webley that has had the cylinder modified to fire .45 ACP.Question is can anybody give me some reloads in .45 ACP brass that would be safe in this old War Horse? I will be shooting only cast bullets in it.

I would look in a manual that has specific loads for .45 Auto Rim; its maximum pressure is less than .45 ACP. Then use the STARTING loads for .45 AR with whatever weight bullet and brand powder you have on hand.

Standard pressure in .45 ACP is more than proof test pressure for .455 Webley. They never did soup up the loads much when they went to smokeless.
