    Upon advice: I have re-titled this thread:
    I am looking for a 366 expert who might be able to tell me if 16 gauge dies for an older Pacific/Behr blue reloader might fit into a 366.

    I bought one just to get the 16 gauge dies, hoping they will fit into a 12 ga. 366 I can convert.

    I am a long-time 366 user, and want a 16 gauge loader if it can be done.
    Hornady sold out their 16's years ago. If the dies will fit, I think I can get a "Rotating Plate" (I don't know the proper name) made.

    When you fab the carosel plate start with a 20 gauge plate and have someone mill the slots out to 16 gauge. The indexng points for the detent ball would be hard to get right otherwise.

    Thanks Jim;
    Thanks, guys. I have tried different reloaders, but the 366's just seem attuned to my ways. I am a 16 fan, and have tried for a few years to find a 16 ga 366 with no luck. I will use Jim's advice, and start with a 20 gauge plate.
