I am in the process of putting together a list of parts needed to upgrade to 45acp.

Here is what I came up with.

Shell plate 90652
Priming kit 90660
Turret 90497
Case feeder 90658
3 die set 90513

Total cost around $80

Did I miss anything? Please advise.

Thanks

Consider buying the whole 45acp carrier. It comes with the shell plate
and the large primer feed which makes future swaps so easy!
You don't even have to adjust the timing every time you swap.
And it gives you 'backup' parts in case something breaks.

I use same case feed for both. You have to adjust height anyway
so might as well save a few bucks and put it toward the 45 carrier.

^+1 The whole carrier is MUCH easier to swap. And if you get a new action rod, then you don't even need to pull that out. Just swap the turret and the carrier and adjust your case feeder.

I went out and bought another Pro 1000 when I caught one on sale. For the price you get a dedicated press for each. For me it didn't make much sense to buy the parts needed to change over my 9mm press to 45acp.

Now all I have to do is check the powder drop to make sure it's dropping the correct charge and start making rounds. I tend to stick with the same bullets so setup time is very low.
