Roberson Cartridge Co brass

Just had an email with Jeff Roberson of RCC brass. They use CNC lathes and mills to manufacture brass cartridges and specialize in obsolete, vintage, hard to find and wildcat calibers, plus custom head stamps. They replicate head stamps similar to the original manufactures and also put their company logo on them (not making exact replicas), but everything else is like they were manufactured aside from being lathe-turned instead of drawn brass. He said a lot of the original cartridge specs are difficult to find, but that they have approximately 2,000 different drawings and are always looking for more information. He said they are also glad to share their information with others too.

DK - Do you have an information about cost, minimum number
of pieces of each caliber, etc., for their regular line of cartridges
(not custom, wildcat, etc.)?

They have a large assortment of cartridge cases in almost anybody’s
collecting line, but while they give price and ordering requirements for
special stuff, they don’t mention anything but a single piece price for
their normal line. I am talking about calibers from their list and with
their on R.C.C. headstamp. If you can buy singles, any collector who
wants this modern stuff could have a field day, but if they have a 20
piece minimum per caliber, and a setup fee for each caliber, few of us
could afford to buy an meaningful amount of the calibers offered in his
field.

I don’t know any specifics, but I assume that if they have any loose extra brass cases that they would be willing to sell singles to collectors. I would try their email or phone number and ask the head guy - Jeff.

A few years back I got some repros of the types of rounds that I would never be able to afford from http://www.rockymountaincartridge.com But I see they are going out of business so maybe a few of the impossible to afford rounds can be gotten from this group before they quit the business.

Hi All,

I’m Jeff with Roberson Cartridge Company (RCC) and we specialize in manufacturing obsolete, vintage, hard to find and wildcat cartridges. Replicate the head stamp, not duplicate, and we are always seeking information and will share the information we have with you. We use CNC lathes and mills to make cases so we can make any caliber, up to 8" in diameter, for you. Please visit our website and let us know how we can help you.

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff - from you normal line (not a custom order), do you sell single specimens to collectors? You have quite a few calibers on your list, for example, that I would like to acquire with your headstamp. I collect all calibers/case types of ammunition for Semi-automatic pistols. Obviously, most collectors could not afford the set-up charge for each of 15 or 20 case types they would like to have.

Hi John,

We normally make a few extra pieces when we do runs. Right now I’ve got some extra 9mm Mauser in the semi-auto if your interested. We normally manufacture to order with a 20 piece minimum and if you want to send me a wish list then I can cross reference when we get orders. There’s no setup fee unless we do wildcat or custom head stamps.

Jeff,

within the next week, I sill put together a list. Any that would constitute a custom order for you, simply ignore.

Thank you for your quick reply.

If you haven’t been lately, or have never been, then the RCC website is worth a look. They list tons and tons of potential cases they can custom build & headstamp - many wildcats and obsolete things. I see they offer a potential custom RCC .300 Blackout case, so that has me excited. Most of the calibers dictate a minimum purchase of 50, at custom-build prices which most collectors would not want so many of, but if you email him (Jeff), he can see about leftover samples or partial lots.

There are ;probably lots of these headstamps than many of us want, but the price, if one has to buy fifty to get a signle specimen, is absolutely prohibitive. Too bad. While their website does not seem to be able to be searched for specific items, just in glancing it over, I found a 30 Borchardt Headstamp. Assuming that is the 7.63 x 25 mm case type, it makes me wish they would cater to collectors a bit. I also wish on their website that one could refine it down to a single category, like auto pistol, revolver, etc. It takes a lot of time to go thru the quantity of headstamps they seem to offer. It would be nice if one could search single, specific “calibers” (specific case types).

If they would sell collector packages, I could see some order one of each for an instant RCC collection.

When this was first posted I e-mailed him with a list of several case types I was interested in. He replied he was going to be sending me the prices & such, but nothing ever happened. So I gave up on him.

Of the many, MANY case types listed on the Roberon website, I would say that around 95% do not show an actual photo image of a finished brass case / headstamp, but some do. I thought this Japanese 11x60R Murata was interesting. Probably haven’t been any of these cases manufactured from scratch in quite some time.
