Redding Ultramag Press or Forster CoAx????

I am having a custom 338-378 Weatherby Magnum made. Since the OAL of the cartrige is 3.753, as best I can remeber since I don't have my manual here, I can't use my old RCBS. The two presses I have found that will work is the Redding Utramag or the Forster. I read all the reviews on the Forster on line at Cabelas and it seems to be a very good press. However there is nowhere to read reviews on the Redding. Wanted to see if anyone had any like or dislikes for either press. I am absolutely anal about my over all length accuracy and the Forster scares me, but I have never used either and don't know anyone that has either press...

I have tried several makes of reloading presses and much prefer the Foster Co-Ax. If something happened to the one that I have now, I would replace it with anothe Foster Co-Ax.

Check out the Lyman presses as well. They are well built and large enough for the ultra magnums. I load my 300RUM on one (lyman T-Mag turret)now and it is very sturdy. The Lyman Crusher is the single stage press and it has a 4.5" opening.
