    Been trying to call RCBS for 4 hours now every time I call it's busy. IS 800-533-5000 the right number?

    That's the number that I have. I also tried it and got a busy tone.

    When I called a couple of weeks ago I got a busy signal 2 or 3 times then when I did get through I was caller #5 which then took 15-20 minutes of holding.

    Be patient you will get through, I'm guessing Monday is there busiest day of the week since they don't take calls on Friday.

    Just out of curiosity I sent them an email this morning and asked them about the busy phone. Their reply is below. This might help out some.

    HI Dick, I know it can be very hard to get the busy signal but we have
    a full staff of 5 people answering one call after another. We are all
    averaging over 100 each so as you can see it's just a very busy place.
    Is there anything that we can help you with by email? Wednesdays and
    Thursdays are typically our slowest days on the phone.

    They answered my email question pretty quickly. I would imagine their phones are busy due to the surge in reloading popularity.
