    The 2 loaders are not in the same league. PW hands down will out work and out last the 366. Plus, if you desire at a later date to put power to the loader, then PW is the way to go. I would go Mec 9000g before 366. I actualy like my 800 plus PW better than my Spolar. My opinion, good luck. Daryl.

    Either should last you a lifetime. I have almost twenty five years of loading on my 366 and no complaints.

    We have and use two 366 along with a pw 800 plus hyd. Both work great. I load most of my practice shells on the 366 and the big production jobs on the pw. The pw is a little easier to change loads 366 not bad just a little more work. Still nothing like a hyd. unit for resizing and making life easy. Check the clubs for sale board I found all my loader used that way.

    Neither

    It really goes from a Mec 900 to a Spolar

    At 5000 shells per year, you won't live long enough to wear out a 366.
