Parts required for caliber change?

Hi! I'm new to this forum and appreciate any help. I just picked up a 650 xl second hand. It has the case feeder, powder check and a 3rd part bullet feeder. Only "problem" is that the previous owner loaded 6,5x55 and I want to load 30-06. I get totally lost in dillons catalogs and all videos on YouTube. What parts do I need to change it from 6,5x55 to 30-06?

I'm fully aware that the bullet feeder most likely won't work as my bullets got a significantly larger diameter but I'll see if I can find other parts for that one or simply place the bullets manually.

Thanks for any support.

Look on Ebay. Search using dillon conversion 30-06. You'll see a picture of what you need. That's what I did when I converted from .45 ACP to 9 mm. Some parts are color coded. Also, I do not know what primer size 6.5X55 uses. If it uses small rifle primers, you'll need to get the parts that handle large primers.

Did you receive a manual with the loader? There is a chart in the manual that shows what will interchange between calibers.

Thanks for the input. I did get the manual but I must admit I haven't read past the installation part so I'll have another look in it. Thanks!
