"If I was you I would get the newer Lee classic turret press."
Purchase your tools based on your needs, not other people's favorites; Lee's Classic Turret is the answer for YOUR needs. (It's not my choice but my needs are much different from yours.) Lee's are the ONLY turret presses that offer an auto-indexing feature that really speeds production. And their tool heads are both inexpensive and easy to swap out by hand.
Switching calibers on any progressive is more of a PITA than many wish to put up with so a lot of guys with a taste for progressives get one for each cartridge - that works well but it's COSTLY!
Shotshells do require their own presses. Look at the MEC line for somethng that will match the volumes you expect to turn out at one setting.
