2019 SHOT Show: a Discussion with RCBS

Ever wonder what “RCBS” stands for? RCBS has an interesting history, and has kept true to their roots with their “green lineup”.  At the 2019 SHOT Show, I had the opportunity to talk with RCBS Product Manager William Hemeyer to learn more about the history of RCBS, the RCBS product values, and more. Here’s my interview […]

Pistol Case Expanders: Overview, Comparison, Setup

Case expansion is critical when loading pistol ammunition. Too little case mouth expansion, and you’ll fail to place/retain bullets, and you’ll also shave the bullet if you’re loading hard cast lead bullets. Too much case mouth expansion, and you’ll over-work the brass and cause it to fail prematurely. So let’s take a look at some […]

SHOT Show 2018: A Brief Recap

Let’s just say this: The SHOT Show is absolute insanity. Last year (2017) saw 65,000 attendees, and the 2018 SHOT Show was most likely close to this number. I heard from someone that if you walked all of the aisles and saw all of the booths, you’d walk a total of about 6 miles! It […]

Unboxing the RCBS Ultrasonic Cleaner

In preparation for loading 45 ACP on the RCBS Pro Chucker 5, I thought it would be a great idea to “get serious” about my die cleaning setup. Well, I’m about to show you a huge upgrade from my “shake the dies in a can of paint thinner method” that I’ve used for years. I’m […]

In a previous post, I demonstrated using machine shop equipment (a metal lathe and milling machine) for rifle brass prep. In this post, I’m following up on a suggestion to show the RCBS Trim Pro 3-Way cutter to collapse thee steps into one. Here’s the steps that I showed in the original post: Lube, size, […]

RCBS introduces Summit single stage press – now this is different!

Single stage presses are all pretty much the same, right? There are some exceptions like the Forster Co-Ax press, but for the most part these presses have the same basic design. RCBS has recently introduced a new take on the single-stage reloading press: The Summit. You can see in this picture how the base of […]

Poll: What pistol dies do you like most?

RCBS Lock-Out Die Part I: Theory of Operation

Most reloaders have heard of the RCBS Lock-Out Die. This device will allow the reloading press to cycle normally when there is a proper powder charge, but will “lock up” the press if there is too much powder in the charge, or not enough powder in the charge (including no powder – a “squib load”). […]

Side-by-side: All 4 5-station progressive reloading presses!

It’s one thing to look at separate pictures of products you’re comparing, but it’s another thing to see products side by side. I’m thinking of some of the great side-by-side picture comparisons I’ve seen for concealed carry pistols- a picture is simply worth 1000 words! I thought I would take the opportunity to take a […]

What about plated bullets in the RCBS pistol bullet feeder?
