My question is why would or could you not use the shell plate for the 380 is there that much difference in the base of the two?

Yeah, I just went back and reacquainted myself with that issue. 9mm will not fit in the 4s shellplate. Something about the rim dimensions as Sparky alluded to.

I tried the mod's but finally went back to the 19s shell plate & have no problem with 9mm. Just be sure to leave the case retainer loose on station 2 so the 9mm case can move out a little to center the primer. Using a sizing die in station 2 without the decapping pin assures the case will center over the primer punch. Since I do case prep (resizing, decapping, primer pocket cleaning) before actually reloading, I do not seat the die in station 2 all the way down.
