    Set the bottom adjustment so that the shell clears the primer on roration, set the top adjustment to get the correct depth.

    The top adjustment will change if you change the brand of shells you are using,

    Reiffenhaussen shells vary a lot depending on the thickness of the base wad

    It is really a good Idea to stick with the same hulls if you can

    Get the spring loaded primer ram and you can load any brand of shell you choose without having to make adjustments to the primer ram when you switch. Best add on to the 366 loader since the swing out wad guide and automatic index.

    The spring primer ram is the only way to go. It gives you very consistent primer seating.

    Next add Jim Skeel's(skeeljc) shot and powder reservoirs. They are well worth the asking price. Super high quality.

    my only real bitch about the 366 is the spring loaded primer seater should have been a factory standard component years ago....
