Has anyone updated the primer seater on an older 366 machine? Does it clear up the problem with using different brand hulls in a batch? I'm strongly considering upgrading to a PW 800 series or a MEC 9000, but want to give ole girl an overhaul first.

I switched mine a few years ago, works great. No more dished in shell bases. AA, sts , gun club, fed, all work the same. GO FOR IT

Yes well worth it if you are talking about this. Will solve your problem.

Solves the primer seating adjustment issue but you still need to make other minor adjustments to the crimp and sometimes the load with the various hulls. I use to load most any hull but found it much easier to stick with Remington STS and GC hulls only. They aren't that hard to come by and I don't have to mess around with adjustments.

For what its worth, the other loaders you mentioned are not an upgrade to a good running 366. (at least in my opinion)

Matt - I like your modification on the primer drop. See through window so you know when you are about out of caps with a shut off pin - nice.

Matt that's what I'm referring to. Thanks for the effort. Is that pawl altered or factory? Looks different than mine.

The shell plate advance paw is factory. This is a Pacific Model DL366. They changed the system slightly later on.

I drilled the holes for quick primer level viewing. The shut-off pin system is a purchased upgrade. It all works good. Got my machine purring like a kitten right now. Thats why i haven't cleaned it. :)

The primer seating upgrade works great. I even modified one to work on my 28 ga machine. Don't bother with the primer cut off. Just insert a spent primer upside down in the primer foot and it won't drop primers until the spent primer is removed.
