Leave it to RCBS® to create an entirely new way to prime cases. This APS Hand Priming Tool is revolutionary in a number of ways.

First, the universal shell holder completely eliminates the need for additional shell holders. It accepts case sizes from .32 ACP to 45-70.

Secondly, each strip is color-coded for easy identification and holds 25 primers. With each handle stroke, a fresh primer is seated into the case and the primer strip is advanced through the APS body to position another primer for seating. The primer strips are designed to connect to each other for continuous feed.

The APS system also eliminates the handling of loose primers and the contamination that goes with it. Plus, it insures a smooth feed and a highly sensitive feel with every primer seated.

The APS Hand Priming Tool is also completely portable. You don't need to be tied down to your bench to prime. With a tool this fast, safe and convenient, hand priming has never been easier.

RCBS® was founded from a hobby, by Fred T. Huntington, in the early 1940's.

Originally located in the back room of his father's Oroville laundry on High Street, RCBS soon outgrew this modest beginning and in 1947 was relocated to Fred's garage on 7th Avenue. The business continued to grow quite rapidly, and several more moves took place. Today, RCBS is housed in about 110,000 square feet of building.

The very first RCBS dies were specifically designed to form jacketed bullets from fired .22 caliber copper cases. Because these bullets were used to shoot Rock Chucks - a varmint of the Western United States - RCBS named these dies Rock Chuck Bullet Swage, later shortened to RCBS.

Although they no longer manufacture bullet-swaging dies, RCBS is the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols. The brass case is the most expensive part of a loaded round, and when reloaded, offers savings of about 60% over factory-loaded ammunition. RCBS sells reloading equipment throughout the world and currently has a work force of one hundred employees.

RCBS was acquired by Omark Industries in July, 1976 and became part of the Sporting Equipment Division. In 1985, Omark Industries was in turn purchased by Blount, Inc.

In December of 2001, Alliant Tech Systems purchased RCBS. ATK is a leading provider of advanced weapon and space systems with approximately 15,000 employees and operations in twenty-two states. The company is the world's leading supplier of solid propulsion systems and the nation's largest manufacturer of ammunition. RCBS is part of ATK Civil Ammunition Group.
