Do I need the "Lee Precision GAGE/HOLDER" for handgun calibers?

I ordered a Classic Turret Press Kit (90304) along with dies. I will be reloading .223, 6.5x55, 30-06, .380 ACP, .38 Special and .45 ACP initially. I ordered the GAGE/HOLDER's for the rifle cartridges at the advise of a customer service rep at Lee, do I also need them for the handgun cartridges?

No, you'll never need trim handgun cases. They typically shrink, not grow.
