Re: Forster reloading equipment...any good?
I use a lot of Forster dies, and a few other brands as well. Have never owned their bushing sizer, so can't make a comment about them. All my bushing dies are from Wilson with a couple of exceptions.
* I don't use the Forster lock rings. I use the Lyman steel lock rings for two good reasons. The Lyman rings are about .005" thinner, and seem to allow the die to float into alignment better. Plus the Lyman rings come with a Allen type of screw instead of a screw driver slot screw. Just makes life easier for me.
* I actually see little difference between the Forster seater and a Wilson. Maybe .0005". If you plan on using very high B/C bullets and VLD's, be sure to order a VLD seater stem. Do you need the micrometer head? Depends on how often your swapping bullets, and how many different chambers you load for (same caliber). Accuracy wise, there is no difference.
* The press comes with an excellent priming device, and I would use it till I desired something a little better like the Sinclair or K&M.
* I also have several of the Forster case trimmers (old style), but use them for all sorts of odd jobs, rather than trim cases with them. I prefer the Wilson over all that I've used.
*** your going to need a scale and a powder measuring device. Something like the RCBS 10-10 is a good start that will last you a long time. I use nothing but Pact electronic scales (own three, and have had four). I use two measurers. A Lyman #55 with all the Sinclair add on's. It's a great cheap measuring device, and surprisingly accurate. The other is a Harrell Culver style measurer, and I won't recommend this one for a novice. But trust me it's as good as it gets. The Redding 3BR is also an excellent place to start (I think Sinclair sells a bottle adapter, and this is a must have!) I wouldn't buy one of the automated measures for a starter system. You can do everything just as accurately, but take a little longer.
*** you need something like the Hornaday Lock & Load measuring device to set you dies up. This will help set up seating depths and even headspace. And while on the measuring subject, you need a good 1" micrometer, and a good digital caliper. Later you may want a case gauge to check your work. I use a Neco, and a couple home brew ones. Neco is probably the best you can buy off the shelf.
