"Contender: So with the caliber conversions, I don't need a new kit to switch from 38 to 357, is that correct?"Everyone: Thanks for all this good information. It’s all very helpful.

It would be easier to get the quick change setup I see on their website. Along with another set of dies. So the dies don’t need reset and the powder drop adjusted. Right?
That is correct. I have the quick change for 38-357. But if I remember correctly all you need to change is the bullet seating/crimp die and the powder amount /powder check. NO BIG DEAL.
"Jim, I was going to say that's a pretty small table you have for reloading, but I see it's weighted down sufficiently!"
If you are efficient and using a smooth running 650 you don't need a big HEAVY table. Notice there are 3 presses mounted on that small table. Also I have the 650 mounted on a piece of plywood and clamped to the table so that I could take it with me when I was working out of town. All I had to do was clamp it to the kitchen table and I was ready to reload which I did many 1000s of rounds.
