Lee dies: Charging pistol vs. rifle cases

Here is a real newbie question: I just started reloading and have been loading 9mm with the Lee carbide 3 die set. To charge cases, I simply put the funnel on top of the powder-through-expander die. I now am going to start loading 30-06 and I see that there isn't a die like this with the rifle die sets. How do you charge the cases? Thanks

You can get rifle powder charging dies from Lee, as well as charging dies that actuate a Lee Autodisk measure. I don't load progressives, but I do recall seeing these while browsing a MidSouth Shooters Supply catalog.

You don't need to load progressively to use the powder-through die and AutoDisk. I do it on a Lee Challenger. It could be more stable, I admit... If you have a 4-hole turret, I believe that Lee also makes a universal powder-through die. That way, one station throws powder only (no belling, etc.).
