.455 New Service

The New Service Colts are top of the line revolvers which are well made and increasingly collectable. It was I believe, precursor to the later Python. The .455 round was common British issue until just prior to ww2, in a variety of arms, most famously the Webley inspired revolvers. It was also chambered in the Colts for sale to the British Empire. It is just a tad underpowered compared to the .45 auto. It is easy to reload and components are available. Reloading to shoot a nice New Service would be just the thing.
