Single stage presses are all pretty much the same, right? There are some exceptions like the Forster Co-Ax press, but for the most part these presses have the same basic design. RCBS has recently introduced a new take on the single-stage reloading press: The Summit.
You can see in this picture how the base of the press bolts down to your bench and the die mount actually moves up and down instead of an under-bench ram moving up and down. There are a couple benefits that I can see here:
- You don’t need clearance under your bench
- The case stays stationary which makes bullets and cases less likely to tip
Here’s some information from RCBS:
|9290||Summit Single Stage Reloading Press|
|9291||Short Handle – Summit Reloading Press|
Features & Benefits

I’m curious about this press. Anyone else have experience with it? Please leave a comment! More information is available from RCBS HERE.
