How do I adjust my 366 Auto shotshell press to load the new Winchester AA hulls?

Readjust Station 7 up to get the pressure off the case. It will usually need to be raised two complete turns. The manual calls for 7 to 9 threads above the jam nut. Around 10 to 11 turns will work for the new AA cases. After the adjustment, you may have a small hole in the center. This can be corrected by adjusting Station 6 down.

How can I get the expander on my size die out of the case?

Use black graphite from your hardware store as a neck lube. Dip the neck in it after you lube the outside of the case. The powder already has graphite in it, so it won't contaminate the powder.
