RCBS going Chinese?

I just wanted to share a tidbit of information. I have just purchased a VLD Chamfer Tool for my Case Prep Center, and on the packaging it said that it was made in China. I think that I will be a bit more careful in my purchases in the future.

If it's China then I'll avoid RCBS components.

They're stuff has been made overseas for several years. All they're electronics are made there. Not sure about their dies though.

Re: RCBS going Chinese?

Only one reason to manufacture in china...cheap real cheap labor. So they saved big time...funny though I didn't see any savings passed on to the consumer...did any of you? So big time profit for them=Greed.

Greed of coarse and don't believe for a minute it was to remain competitive since most of there competitors aren't in china. ps not capitalizing the C in china wasn't cause I'm dumb.

At the very least I wouldn't buy their stuff from china and if enough folks followed suit...they might stay in china but they wouldn't be manufacturing in china too long unless they just want to stockpile the stuff and that's not likely.

Well said!I picked up a set of hornady electric scales the other day only to find made in china on the back,greed greed greed,this is a little bit off topic but to show how extreme it is becoming around the world i was watching a news article which horrified me, it was about beautiful fresh Australian fish being caught here on our shores and then being sent to asia to be cleaned and filleted all because of "labour" cost, WTF!The worst part was this whole process is a 12 week turnaround from when they were caught!!I guess i just can't believe these brands that have built buisness on reputation and earning our trust over decades are willing to throw it all away for a couple of extra dollars.Support your own country i say!!
