Yes. Lee Part No. 90198 That's the entire set. You can also buy them individually.

Yes, it takes a special shellholder.

Now, what I did, when I had an Autoprime, is take a regular shellholder for your caliber, and go to the bench grinder and grind off the bottom part, the part that goes into your ram on a single-stage.  Grind it off flush, file it up nice and smooth, it works with the Autoprime just fine.

It takes it's own shell holder not the regular ones.

Look at the web site.........

http://www.leeprecision.com/cgi/catalog/browse.cgi?1241066322.987=/html/catalog/primtool.html

About half way down the page are the "special" shell holders.

You can also buy them individually from Midway they're about $2.80 each

If you go to Midway's section on Lee reloading stuff (all Lee products) they start on or about page 40.

Considering that a whole set is something like 12 bucks...

I actually have two of the autoprimes, I keep one set up with the large primer ram and the other with the small.  One set of shellholders is shared between the two units, although the #5 (.45 acp, 30-06, 308 etc) is almost always in the one set up for large primers.

If I am not mistaken, the shell holders are in a red box for the auto prime unit, while the "regular" shell holders come in a green box.
