I would call Dillon.
They are really helpful.

Your Redding sizer and seater will work. Your Dillon conversion kit should contain a case mouth expander/powder tube.

I would suggest a LEE factory crimp die for all pistol cases.

+1 Generally non-Dillon dies have to be screwed all the way down to work in the thicker dies head of the Dillon press. I am speaking from the reference of the RL-450 as I (unfortunately) do not have a 1050. Threads are the same.

Congrats on your 1050. My suggestion would be to get a complete caliber conversion kit for .45ACP and use your existing dies for working up new loads on your single press. For the most part, I use all Dillon dies in all my conversion kits.

Seating and crimping really should be done in separate operations. That's why Dillon puts in that extra station.

The LEE FCD partially resizes the front of the case to give better neck tension as well as crimping.
