Question Priming tools and accuracy

I've always used the press mounted priming arm on an old RCBS JR press to prime my cases. I now have the option of using the priming device on my new Forster CoAx press, but have read that "hand held" priming tools are more uniform and accurate.

I want uniform and accurate reloads!

What benefit is there to the hand held tools? Seems to be quite a variance in quality if price indicates quality.

The instructions included with the Forster press indicate that it would/should be very uniform. Could be "uniform... good" OR "uniform...not so good."

Please give me your input on priming tools and the priming process.
