RCBS Summit Single Stage Reloading Press

The RCBS Summit press is in its 10th year of production, and a limited-edition model featuring Freedom Camo (shown above) in red, white and blue is available in 2024.

The single-stage, U.S.-made reloading press is built for durability, thanks to its cast frame with steel linkages and finely polished 2" steel ram.

The Summit’s 4.5" opening provides easy access to cartridge components during the reloading process.

The C-Frame design of the press allows for universal bench mounting while keeping moving parts above the bench plane. In this press design, the cartridge case remains fixed while the reloading die moves into position.

The Summit press works with standard 7/8x14 TPI or 11/4x12 TPI dies with the size-reduction bushing removed. A zerk fitting allows for easy lubrication.

MSRP is $270 for the standard model and $379 for the limited-editon press. For more information, visit
