In this video I de cap a piece of brass every 3.5 seconds with one hand using a co-ax press with jaws that grab the case.

If I use the right hand, I lean to the left.
If I use the left hand, I lean to the right.
This keeps the spine load balanced.
Reaching out with both hands is tiring, but one hand reloading is easier.
must be nice to own two of them side by side!! Someday I will

The Forster is a true "toggle Press", where the others are not. A toggle press is an engineering device to compound the exerted force in travel. There's no way that a conventional press of anykind will ever reach those power levels. As for pinching fingers, I simply can't see how in a 25-06 unless you were trying to do it. ( I can see it in something like a 17 hornet). Just did a bunch of 30-06 cases in my press, and it was a breeze. I've also done 300 Win mags and never saw the slightest problem. Perhaps a .300 WBY mag might be starting to get tight (I don't load that one), but not a 2 5/8th" case length. The press has plenty of room.

Try and seat a 220 grain bullet in a 300 Win Mag case and tell me there is plenty of room.

I seem to have more problems with 45 acp and 40 S&W than I do anything that's long.

Re: Hard time between Forster and Redding

Bench rest guys love them as does the Army Marksmanship unit. I'm buying one in a couple months.
