I bought this press because I have limited space where I reload. My old press would stick out beyond the edge of the bench; when using the press the arm would swing even further into the cramped quarters. I saw the design and took a chance. I am elated I did. This press sits on top of the bench, thereby freeing up the floor space. The leverage that this press delivers is impressive. I really like the fact the die is what moves and not the casing and bullet. This makes reloading much easier. Set the bullet atop your ready to go casing and pull the handle. That is all it takes! The bullet seats perfectly straight every time. I do not think a better single stage press exists. If I could I would give 6 stars!

Good press

I took time and did a lot of research on several different presses. Including single stage, progressive, and turret presses. Stayed with single stage for precision. Went with the summit because of the stout and rugged design. Also liked the idea of a counter top reloader. Good smooth operation and a heavy duty press. I have reloaded from .45 ACP to .45-70 and 300 win mag. Nothing but good luck with the summit so far. With proper use and care this press should last a lifetime. Hopefully RCBS will offer quick attach bushings soon.

The summit press is a heavy duty press. Easy to use. I have reloaded calibers from .45 ACP to .45/70 and .300 win mag. Sturdy press makes for precision reloads. Would like to see them offer quick attach bushings.

RCBS Summit press

New to reloading, but absolutely love mine. It is stout, smooth, and easy to work with. If your looking for a single stage press I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the RCBS Summit.

Great Press!

As one would expect from RCBS, this is an extremely rugged press. Because the die travels, instead of the case, and because of the large diameter of the support column, there is NO off axis flex, meaning you get maximum concentricity and no press induced run out. This makes it an ideal platform for precision ammunition for long range and benchrest competition as well as the perfect press for prairie dog hunters. It is different but surprisingly, it only one short session for me to find the rhythm, and it very quickly began to feel quite "natural" in use. I would suggest you order the short handle to supplement the standard length one, as with shorter cases and with bullet seating in particular, it can be a time and effort saver. This press is one of those great ideas that you wonder why someone didn't think of sooner!
