The RCBS has been producing high-quality reloading tools for beginning and advanced reloaders for over 60 years. One of the most difficult thing about reloading is figuring out what equipment is needed to make accurate, reliable reloads. RCBS has taken that guess work out of the equation with their Explorer Plus Reloading Kit. This kit is compiled with some of the most important tools and equipment that reloaders need with RCBS donating a portion of each proceed going to youth hunting and shooting programs.
So what is included with the Explorer Plus Reloading Kit? This kit includes all of the following items:
- Reloader Special-5 Single Stage Reloading Press, this press features 3-3/4" hand clearance, 30 degree opening offset, primer arm and the ability to be converted to a progressive press in the future
- Uniflow Powder Measure throws consistent, accurate charges uniformly from the measuring cylinder into the cartridge case. Charges are easy to change from charge to charge without having to empty the hopper. The measuring cylinder is precision ground and slides into a precision honed main casting for a tight fit. 100 grain charging capacity. Standard 7/8"-14 threads, includes a stand plate which is drilled for mounting on a bench or under a die lock ring. Comes with two drop tubes for 22 caliber and up.

Also includes data for Nosler's latest bullet lines and detailed step-by-step explanations of the reloading sequence perfect for the novice and experience reloader.

- Universal Case Loading Block, double-sided design that has 25 holes on each side for loading a variety of calibers.
- Deburring Tool, that quickly and easily chamfers and deburrs case mouths. Just insert the pointed end into the case mouth and a few twists of the wrist a nice chamfer will be created, flip the tool around and use the same process to remove any exterior burrs from the case mouth.
- Powder Funnel, fits cases from 22 to 45 caliber with a specially designed drop tube that helps to avoid messy powder spills around the case mouth while the non-stick, anti-static surface prevents powder from sticking to the sides.
- Case Slick Spray Lube, flows easily over the surface of brass providing uniform coverage helping eliminate the possibility of denting case shoulders.
- Powder Trickler-2, Great tool for any reloader looking to trickle that final amount of powder into their powder pan to get the perfect weight charge. Designed specifically to work with electronic scales. Also features and adjustable height, non-skid base and powder tube extension.
- Advanced Powder Measure Stand, made from cast aluminum is used designed to elevate any standard 7/8"-14 powder measure above the reloading bench for a better view of the powder dispensing process (Stand is not threaded, the powder measure is held in place with die lock rings)
- Pow'r Pull Bullet Puller, this impact bullet puller is made from a solid one piece body, innovative 3-jaw chuck that grips the case rim. To pull bullets the tool needs to be tapped on a solid surface (like a hammer), until the bullet separates from the case. Will work with most centerfire cartridges from 5.7x28mm FN to Remington Ultra Magnum family of cartridges.
- Stainless Steel Dial Caliper, excellent tool for taking accurate measurements. Constructed from stainless steel with an easy to read dial. Each revolution of the dial is 0.100" with a range of 0-6"
- Small Uniflow Measuring Cylinder, the small measuring chamber is used for reloaders needing to throw small powder charges. Will throw charges between 0 and 50 grains.
- Sixe die lock rings, are constructed from steel and allows the reloader to setup dies and lock the settings in place so when removed and reinstalled dies do not have to be recalibrated. (Fit standard 7/8"-14 threaded dies)
