    Does anyone own both such that they can compare them feature to feature? I'm leaning toward the Sinclair unit because of the ball bearing rollers and it looks dirt simple to use but also read good write-ups about Forster unit. Not sure I like the idea of having to get a separate collet for each caliber with the Forster unit.

    I have a Neco, and it is nice, but overly complicated. (Mine)

    I have used the Sinclair unit and it is nice and simple. I would choose it over the Forster unit. (Which I have not used).

    Hard to go wrong with Sinclair. When I bought my Neco, that Sinclair unit was not available. They did have a similar one though. When this Sinclair version came out I almost bought one, despite already having the Neco.

    For virtually the same money, I would have to go with the Sinclair unit.

    Are the steel balls on the Sinclair unit roller balls or are they fixed in place?

    They are fixed balls that you roll the case over.

    Don't limit yourself to a choice of only two. There are more, and possibly better. Check out Hollandguns.com, for another comparison.

    Now unless you are consistently shooting in the .2's my suspicion is that a concentricity gauge will have no effect on your shooting.
    Turned necks, and bullets seated into the lands will make a greater difference. YMMV cheers.
