    I was wondering if you can use 454 casull dies to load 45 colt. I dont want to buy two sets of dies if I only need one. Thanks for any advice

    Yes you can, but you possibly may have trouble crimping with the 454 Casull crimp die since the 45 colt case is shorter. I know the converse will work.

    .45 Colt works to load .454, but not the other way around.
