    New to reloading and no time to reload now. I am stocking up on components
    and intend to shoot a lot on vacation.
    Calibers I would like to do are : 44 special, 44 magnum, 45 acp, 45 colt, 454 Casull, 357 Sig, 308 Winchester and 300 Ultra mag.
    I have Lee dies for 44, 300, and 454 (never yet have any been used).

    I am considering a progressive, but have only a Rockchucker at this time.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    I'd say no, based on the crimping alone. I don't think you want to roll crimp a round thats gonna headspace on the case mouth.

    The .308 full-length sizing die will resize .45 ACP's , but that doesn't help much because you still won't have a seating and crimping die. (so it's useless, but still kind of cool :) )

    NO.

    NO. They will load .45 Colt, though.
