    Has anyone had problems with the depth of primers in Gun Club hulls. Tried a few differant brand primers and can not get the depth even with the base. Lowered the primer seater and they still are a little above the base. Don't want to mess up the reciever. Using a 366 press and have no trouble with AA's.but there are a lot more free gun clubs around. Any help would be appreciated .Thanks Mike K.

    Mike , yes I had that problem. Thats why I purchased a new primer seater from www.basicdesignmachine.com/ I will never have to change the set up again. It was the best 25.00 I have spent in a long time. You can prime any hull and never have to reset the primer depth. JIM

    Yes, you need to purchase the new primer seater.(Hornady should get off their thumbs and make it standard equipment!!). It will solve that and the AA/STS problem.

    Adjust the powder drop tube until the primer seats flush with the hull. HMB

    I have both primer setters on my 366`s and have no problems as long as I stay with one or the other . I prefer the Remington hulls and have not had any depressed primers at all . When I loaded both AA and Rem I would have to shorten the primer setting for the Remingtons by 1 1/2 turns . If you have it set for one then just load that . I have an extra new spring loaded primer set to install but I dont think I will do that .

    I use a MEC 9000, with all the quirks the machine has that is not one of them and I reload Gun Clubs with a CCI #209 primer.

    Use a RCBS "The Grand" and all your loading problems will go away. Shells look like new. Great Customer service. BRGII

    I use a MEC 9000H, I use Fed.209A primers NEVER have to adjust whatever I am loading. Usually load Fed,GunClubs,STS, every now & then, mostly then-AA.
    Get a MEC.

    I had the directions wrong on my post for the primer set . With the Remington Hulls you have to lengthen the primer press rod because the hulls have a tighter opening . Once that is set , just load Remington hulls both Gun Clubs and STS`s . Why do people insist that someone with a problem get another reloading machine ?? It`s just beyond me of the statement . I guess whatever you guys have is better !!!! There is nothing wrong with a 366 and I`d prefer them over a Mec . I have a Mec 20ga 650 and can`t stand it.

    Mike, Remington primers are shorter than everyone else's. Gun Club hulls have a steel base. It may or may not be copper washed, but it is steel, not brass. So, If you take a primer that is .010" longer (almost all are) than the Remington STS 209 primer and press it into a steel headed Gun Club hull, you will have to exert more pressure. It can be done.

    If you don't want to use STS 209s You might try Win 209 primers. They have a step in the upper section, specifically so they will fit into an STS or Gun Club hull without having to stretch the primer pocket. Fiocchis and Federals do not have the step.

    The best bet regardless of loading machine is to only work with one type of hull at a time. The stock 366 does require primer seating adjustments as well as minor crimp starter and crimper adjustments when changing hull types. But more importantly is the combination of components. A load that works great in the STS/gun clubs probably isn't so great in AA or Federals. There is a lot to be said for tailoring the load.

    On the plus side the different style of hulls can be used to readily identify your handloads. For instance, I will use STS/Gun clubs for my common 1 oz trap/skeet loads and then use Federals for 1 1/8 oz field loads and the AAs for heavy 1 1/4 oz upland shells. Some guys do something similar for first and second shot doubles. (too confusing for me)

    One thing to remember. If you are using the newer Rem. primers,don't use them at night in a semi. It's like shooting a flame thrower. However, you'll have an advantage over the other shooters in your squad. Every time you shoot, they will duck & usually not get back into the proper shooting position, before it's their turn to shoot.:)

    Try Remington Primers in your auto AND Tracer Wads! Really distracting for the informal games at night. Even works in the daytime!
