Dillon Conversion Cross Reference

by Woodsbum

Just this Monday my house has become my own again…. Sort of….. We had somehow ended up with a 7 month “house guest” that was just with us long enough to “get on his feet.” Well, he moved out with some assistance so you guys are going to be getting a lot of reloading posts as I get my reloading benches back up and functioning. What does all this have to do with a Dillon conversion cross reference? Simply, I get to actually use my gear again. Since I have been unable to reload, my entire shooting life has revolved around whatever cheap ammo I could find. Life is about to get good even though I still have a few conversion kits left to get!!!!

Since I am transitioning all my calibers over to my progressive, I have been trying to get all the conversion kits for the calibers I shoot. I actually used this site originally. It cross references what you “have, need and don’t care” about. I checked the chart and found that I needed the following for 9mm, .38/.357, .45 acp, .44 mag, .223, 30-30, 30-06, .308, 45-70, 300 Wby, and 8 mm Mauser.

From this point I need to figure out which conversion kits to buy versus individual parts. I can find that information here:

These charts will require you to do some thinking and planning, but you should be able to figure out which complete kits will get you close and then you will just have to get the individual pieces from there. For instance, here is what I have figured out. If I get the following conversion kits, I will have everything I need for all my calibers I want to reload. Well, I also have to get an “M” powder funnel for my 8mm Mauser and a “B” shellplate holder for my 30 cal’s like my 30-06/308/300 Wby.

  • .223
  • 45-70
  • .45 acp
  • 30-30 Win
  • .38 Special/.357 Mag
  • 9mm
  • .44 Special/Mag

I already have a couple, but figuring this out will actually save me about $150 by cross referencing the conversion kit components rather than buying each individual kit. Depending on what calibers you have it might actually save you more. With all these references listed above you should be able to figure out everything that you need and get set up.

      Not a problem. I actually use this chart A LOT for my own reference. Eventually, I will get motivated to print it out and laminate it. Just don’t hold your breath on the motivation and completion of that project.

    I was wondering why the shell plate for the 50 AE would not work for the 44 Rem Magnum. I have a desert eagle and they use the same bolt so wouldn’t that work. I know I would need a different powder funnel, but maybe that should be it?

      I have no idea. You can try it or find one to do a “stare/compare” between the two. Sometimes it has to do with the depth of the cuts of the plate so that it cycles properly, or so I have been told.

    Appreciate the charts. Will save me a bundle as I’m just buying for many different pistol & rifle loads. Thanks for your time!

      You are welcome. I actually have this chart printed, laminated, and sitting on my reloading bench at home.
