I have been reloading, off and on, since 1969 and for the first
15 years used a single stage (and and some single stage
Lee Loaders ). I picked up a Lee turret about 12-15 years
ago and have been quite satisfied, but always had an itch for
a Co-Ax. Well, I cashed my January SS check and bought
one.I set it up for 3 or 4 cartridges and ordered the LS jaws
for 30-30 and 9mm. I was looking and thinking, wanting to
set up and load some 9mm, and I dug out my shell holder
box and checked out 9mm shell holders. I only had one so I
picked up a 45 ACP holder, I had 3 of those) and checked it
out. The base sorta resembles a case head so I reduced the
diameter and thickness of the base to much the same size as
a 45 ACP case head. I put it in the jaws, and pulled the lever;
the "universal" shell holder was held tightly by the Co-Ax
jaws. I put a case in the shell holder and ran it into a sizing
die, it worked! In and out, no problems. I only
sized/decapped 20 or so but it does work...

Now this was just an experiment as the stock jaws will prolly
work better, but in an emergency, when the correct jaws
aren't available I can reload using a modified "universal" shell
