Wow - you must have done some digging to resurect this thread. My post was in 2007!
I agree with your assessment of the ergonomics on the Forster. Fine press but I just didn't care for it. Too restrictive and I kept pinching my fingers when seating bullets in long cartridges. I like Redding equipment and since my last post I have added both a Lee Classic Cast and Lee Classic Turret to the bench. I like the ergonomics on both of those better than the Forster too.
