  • New RCBS Single Stage Reloading Press

    has anyone seen the new RCBS is offering a new Summit™ Single Stage Reloading Press .... it appears to me that it cold be setup as a portable press .... I'm interested in coming up with a compact, EASY TO USE, press that I could take and use at a range when developing a new load

    I don't see it as very more portable than the RockChucker. Probably weighs twice as much. Still requires a solid bench to be bolted to. Portable is the old Lyman 310 or the original Lee Loader, a hammer, and scales.

      good points to consider, so I looked it up

      1. Rock Chucker --- 20 x 15 x 10 inches ; 20.2 pound

      2. Summit --- 18 x 8 x 6 inches ; 20 pounds

        in addition to range work, I'd like to be able to transport it during our travels for use along the way .... in addition to a powder drop, and a few other accessories in as small of a box as possible .... the idea that has been bouncing around in my head is the box could be board to mount them .... the box could then be clamped to a campground's picnic table .... such a setup could drastically reduce the amount of loaded ammo I need to transport and give me something I enjoy doing during slower days

            the picture below shows a Summit press mounted on a portable stand that used a 2" really like the concept .... for my use I'd want the riser to be much shorter.... I'd want to be able to use it while seated in a camping chair .... I'm no longer considering the Summit, its simply too heavy and too expensive .... I believe a Partner (link above) would work well on a highly customized version of the stand pictured ....
