    Can a press used for shotgun shells be converted to a pistol/rifle press with proper dies and what not?

    No. Different sizes for dies, different leverage, etc. Remember, with a metallic cartridge, one step is sizing- squeezing brass back down. Shotshell press does not have leverage to do that.
