Default RCBS Celebrates 75 Year Anniversary

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – June 28, 2018 – RCBS, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, is celebrating 75 years in business this month.

RCBS was born in a small 12 by 6 foot room in the back of a laundry mat in Oroville, California in the year 1943. In the early days following the attack on Pearl Harbor, there was a tremendous shortage of bullet-making equipment. RCBS founder Fred T. Huntington had been shooting and hunting all of his life and wanted to make sure he would be able to continue pursuing his passion, even with limited products in his reach.

The first dies were named Rock Chuck Bullet Swage as they were specifically designed for making jacketed bullets to shoot the Rock Chucks in the Western United States, providing the acronym RCBS that the company would become known by in later years.

By 1950, RCBS reloading equipment was in full production, and the company successfully launched the now famous A-2 Press – a vast improvement over reloading equipment of the time. By 1958, the RCBS Junior Press and Reloader Special were introduced to customers. These products showcased the secret of RCBS “Precisioneered” quality and the company’s ability to combine the old with the new to bring customers the finest, most efficient, precision-engineered reloading tools available.
