Quck Dillon RL550B Question

If I want to change to a different caliber on the RL550 do I need both a die set and a caliber conversion kit?

The short answer is yes.
The long answer is depending on what caliber conversion you own and what caliber you want to load.
Take for instance 9mm and 40 sw. they share the same shell plate so you only have to buy new buttons and funnel instead of a complete caliber conversion.
When dealing with Democrats, let us remember we are
not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with
creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices
and motivated by pride and vanity.

Check the chart from Dillon or BrianE before ordering a conversion. AS red notes, you may already have most of the parts.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
