    I have recently acquired a couple of Hornaday 366 reloaders. One is a 20ga and the other is a 12ga. Where's the best place to acquire parts and a owners manual?

    Any other help would be greatly appreciated. I've never used one of these presses until yesterday and find them to be a nice press. I did notice that you need to use a nice steady stroke in order to produce a quality shell.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    I need to get a primer tray and a couple of the shot/powder tubes. I also need a 2 3/4" second stage crimper. The 12ga press has a 3" on it. It is also a Pacific (self indexing).

    All I need for the 20ga is a primer tray and some powder and shot bushings.

    Are the powder and shot bushings the same as what is used in the RCBS Grand reloader?

    It is my understanding that RCBS, Spolar, P/W, and Hornady all use the same size bushings. The powder and shot bushings are different diameters so they can't be swapped by mistake. You can also buy an adapter that will allow the use of MEC bushings in any of these loaders.

    See website above. Look up "conversion bushings." Whiz White may also sell these.

    The Hornady powder bushings are 7/8" OD.

    Most parts are much cheaper to buy from either Midwayusa or Lock Stock and Barrel. The online maunals are realy parts diagrams. Call Hornady and ask for the Operation and set-up manual. Its free. All of the powder and shot bushings are interchangable with all Hornady reloaders and all post-1968 Pacific loaders. The bushings for 105, 266, 155, 200, 300, and 366 are all interchangable. Spolar bshings and RCBS bushings work fine too.

    both 12 and 20 ga use 209 primers so primer tray that fits tube must be the same so you can just buy one and move it to loader in use no time lost in setup just slips on tube Jon

    You might go to the above web site and check it out. He has some larger shot and powder tubes as well as a new style primer seater. The new seating post is spring loaded and once set you will never have to reset it for different type hulls. You will be able to load remington federal or winchester with no changes in the seating depth. $24.95 He also has some other tips for using the loader. JIM All saw was the red x in a box so here is the site. http://www.basicdesignmachine.com/
