    Essentially you should just need a set of 45acp dies, 45 brass, and bullets.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Also, possibly different powder, large pistol primers instead of small, and you'll have to change the shellplate and priming parts.

    I have 3 setups for mine in 9mm, 45 acp and 45 colt. 9mm uses small primers and small shell loader while the 45 use the large. I invested in the base carrier for the 9mm and 45 acp from here Lee Pro Carrier #9 Complete - FS RELOADING I also picked up 2 additional turrets Lee 3 Hole Turret - FS RELOADING it just saves time and effort is all as dies, shell plate, primer feeder and case feed is all that is needed. I'm just starting myself and found some great videos here San Francisco Liberal...WITH A GUN! well worth the effort to download the player and videos. A real wealth of knowledge in the best way to set it up and keep it working perfectly.

    You will need a #2 shell plate and a large primer feed tray, You can get a complete carrier assembly on Ebay for around $50, which will save a bunch of hassle when switching between calibers.
    A large case feeder if You don't want to feed cases by Hand and Also a set of .45 dies in an extra turret helps here.
