    On my 550 I can switch between 9mm and 40sw by changing the tool-head and the buttons. They use the same shellplate. Pull two pins and the powder reset bar and in two minutes you are loading the second caliber.

    Do you use the same shell plate with the 650?
    What different parts do you need to switch with the 650?
    How much is it going to cost?

    You'll need a 650 conversion for the .40 and dies... The 650 unlike the 550 uses a different shellplate because of the circumference difference due to the larger diameter needed for the extra station. It can't be accounted for by simply changing the locator pins as in the 550 shell plate
    The other conversion items a specifically for the casefeeder function and are necessary.
    The spare toolhead is a convenience item, but to me a no brainer, get one.... you can use a small case feed palte for 9mm and .40

    So giving you use your current dies the only things you absolutely need are the conversion itself if you already are set up with your 650 for 9mm.

    It's in the manual. It will list the shellplate, locator pins and powder funnel you need.

    I don't have a manual. I suppose I could download one. I am still trying to make up my mind if I want to buy a 650 or not.
