Shotshell help

My grandfather gave me a Hornady 366 reloader a few weeks ago after I bought my Remington 870 12ga.
This reloader has to be at least 20 years old, and seems to work well, though I have only managed to spill some powder and shot when I test pulled the handle.
I would like to know if it is possible to use this for reloading buckshot 00, and 000.
Also, he gave me a hand reloader, but I know nothing about that.
Is it possible to reload slugs and buckshot with a hand reloader? Is it safe and cost effective?
Along with the reloader, there were some shells in the box, about 200 or so, that are reloads. They for the most part look OK, but again, have to be at least 20 years old. Some have corrosion on the brass and primer, so I wont try those, but the rest look OK. Should I give them a try? Is 20 years too long for shells to sit?
I want to be able to use this gift safely and learn how to make my own shells.
Any advise/help is great. Thanks.
