They made 380, 9mm, 38 spec. use for 357, 30 cal carbine, 44 mag, 45, and 223. These are the ones I have they might have made others, you cannot use 38/357 for 45 the opening is to small.  Ed

There was a discussion on this some time back.

These are the ones that I know about.  (Actually, I have all of them)

45 Colt
45 ACP
45 Auto Rim
44 Magnum,  44 Special
41 Magnum
38 Special, 357 Magnum
40 S&W, 9mm, 38 Super, 38 Auto
380 Auto, .223
32 S&W, 32 S&W Long
32 ACP
30 Carbine

All of these were produced by Star.  I also heard of a 25 ACP machine, but don't know if it was offered by Star or if someone had the dies and shell plate made.
