It was 1943 when RCBS founder Fred T. Huntington began designing swaging dies, due to wartime bullet shortages, to make jacketed bullets for the pursuit of rock chucks and other varmints—the die was aptly named the Rock Chuck Bullet Swage and provided the acronym RCBS that would become the company’s moniker in later years. Huntington’s initial operation consisted of a small, 12'x6' room in the back of an Oroville, Calif., laundromat. As time advanced, so did the company’s product offerings, and today RCBS is a leader in handloading equipment and employs more than 150 people at its Oroville facility.
