1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Hi, shooters.....
    I am still hoping one of you has a 366 set up for 16 gauge shells. Maybe one you haven't used for a few years you could convert to cash.
    I am a 16 gauge lover and shooter, and really like the Hornady 366. It fits my aging bull-headed mind.

    Sam.. all you'll need is a shell plate..and a set of 16 gauge dies..The dies from any Pacific press will work.. The wad guide from a 12 gauge works fine.. the powder and shot drop tubes from a 20 gauge work just fine.. The decapping pin from a 20 gauge work fine.. or turn down one from a 12 gauge.. The final sizing/crimp die is easily made if you have one in any other gauge..(a 20 gauge can be easily opened up).. and really.. the sizing ring from a 16 gauge is all you need.. as the sizing bodies are all the same.. Push come to shove.. you can open up a 20 gauge ring with a carbide cutter on a lathe.. The tricky part is the 16 gauge shellplate.. If you decide to open up a 20 gauge plate.. I'll send you the specs... I'm sorry to say.. you can't have my setup..but I'm happy to help you any way I can..

    Having said all this.. I think Whiz had a setup for a 800C in 16 gauge.. and I see Mec presses in 16 gauge now and then...
