I use a .4510. If you go much smaller you will be down sizing your bullets during seating.

Hi Bruce and Lindy,

Thank you for taking the time to reply.  These are very helpful replies!
Good to know that finding a shell plate wouldn't be an arduous search.

The video is quite informative.  Yes, that looks like a straightforward process.  Very nice to see a deeper delve into the build quality and design.  Nice stuff!!

Changing between 45 ACP and 45 Auto Rim only requires changing the shell plate.   Very easy, should only take a couple of minutes.

I have 45 Auto Rim shell plates in stock.

Hi,
This is my first post here.  I've been a regular lurker for about a year, but have been aware of Star machines for decades.
I understand that to switch between 45 ACP and Auto Rim, all that's needed is a change in the shell plate.  How big of a process is that?  Looks like a partial diasassembly is in order.
I'm guessing, too, that those Auto Rim shell plates are not commonly encountered.

Currently using a Dillon 650, looking to add an auxiliary press to split duties.
So, a Universal would be in order for the above mentioned scenario.  If that's too problematic, I could make due with a .38 Progressive while using the Dillon for the other.

Thanks,
Jim

PS: This forum is a great resource of info.

I would be interested in such a review. I ordered the largest blank plate from Dan and I made my own. They don't have holes for the primer drop, only for the 4 mounting holes. They work very well, but if Dan makes some that are tailored for the Stars, I might look into them. Especially if the plates are cut round, like the base of the Stars.
