Need help from Hornady 366 Users!!!

I've had a 366 for a few months now and enjoy it alot. From the outset, some stations on the spider wheel do not want to slide the completed shell to the hole. the tendancy is to jam with no shell motion until you help it by hand get started. putting a little oil in the station below the spider wheel seems to help some until the oil drys up. Any ideas on how to make the ejection to the hole more reliable??? Thanks in advance.

I've used one for years. It sounds like you aren't seating the primers quite deep enough, causing them hang up in the primer seating area. The spring loaded primer station is being held depressed allowing the primer cup to catch on the edge of the base plate. Adjust the primer punch a little deeper.

If that's not it, then it could be a warped or bent spider/shell plate. That would take a call to Hornady for a new one.

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
