OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -(Ammoland.com)- RCBS, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, will launch a new product to dealers at booth 14551 at the 2018 Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas, January 23 to 26.
Quality handloads start with quality brass, and the new Brass Boss delivers. Getting brass ready to reload used to be a long, arduous process. No more.
The RCBS Brass Boss features six variable speeds, rotating stations that completely prepare trimmed brass for reloading, all in one stop.
The Brass Boss includes tools for all six stations: an inside VLD chamfering tool, outside deburring tool, primer pocket cleaner (small/large), military crimp remover (small/large), primer pocket (small/large), case neck brushes (four diameters) and a tub of dry case neck lubricant. Save time, elbow grease and process brass efficiently with Brass Boss, with an MSRP of $189.95.
RCBS, a brand of Vista Outdoor, is the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, offering reloading equipment throughout the world.
RCBS was founded in 1943 by Fred T. Huntington in Oroville, California. Huntington was a dedicated shooter, but found it difficult to obtain quality varmint bullets. However, after reading about making a die to swage .22 rimfire cartridge cases to form jackets for bullets, he began to craft his own dies in the back room of his father’s Oroville laundry and dry-cleaning business. Because the resulting bullets were used to shoot rock chucks – a varmint of Western North America – he named them Rock Chuck Bullet Swage dies, later shortened to RCBS.
RCBS soon outgrew this modest beginning in the back of a laundromat, and by 1948 Huntington relocated to a small shop. The business continued to grow rapidly, spilling into his garage and then a new building in 1954. By 1958, RCBS was expanding again, first to a 7,500-square-foot factory that quickly grew to 50,000 square feet. As the years passed, more expansions have occurred, but RCBS stayed near its roots. Today, Oroville is still RCBS’ home for state-of-the-art production.
RCBS was acquired by Omark Industries in July 1976 and became part of the Sporting Equipment Division. In 1985, Omark Industries was purchased by Blount, Inc. Alliant Techsystems (ATK) purchased RCBS in 2001. In 2015, Vista Outdoor Inc. spun-off from ATK as a leading provider of outdoor sports and recreation products. And while RCBS no longer manufactures bullet-swaging dies, we are the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, offering reloading equipment throughout the world.
