    If you are dealing with a really large casehead like the 338 Lapua or 378 Wby and you decide to buy a Forster then make sure you get the one that fits the larger cases. They have two sizes for some odd reason. Forster is nice to deal with and has really good customer service.

    I have never looked at the forester, that said I am not sure how anything could be better than the wilson. I like the micrometer stop that indexes off the case head. The only thing I can say bad about it is that sometimes the cases will spin inside the case holder if you do not tap them in firmly enough.

    I have both. For just trimming case necks, the Forster is a little faster, and provides consistent case lengths.
