Lapua is a pioneer in the development and manufacture of sniper ammunition. All our special purpose ammunition is produced to the same match grade requirements as our target ammunition.
Not just according to toughest standards
Lapua quality is appropriately certified as well as approved by several special forces and armies worldwide. Long-term cooperation with different defence organizations helps us understand the special requirements of the military and other professional users. The goal is not to meet requirements but to exceed them.
The most accurate long-range cartridges available
The reliability and excellent accuracy of Lapua ́s professional use cartridges are renowned worldwide. The secret behind the fame is simple: the professional use cartridges are manufactured with the same unconditional precision and care as our leading sport shooting products. Our much-copied paragon of quality and accuracy is the .338 Lapua Magnum, which has an effective range up to 1500 meters. Despite this, the .338 caliber rifles are about the same size and weight as the 7.62 mm rifles. The .338 caliber weapon system is considerably lighter than the .50 BMG system.
Complete selection of ammunition
Lapua offers a complete selection of the .338 Lapua Magnum ammunition including Ball, Armour Piercing, Armour Piercing Incendiary, Open-Tip, Blank, Drill and Solid cartridges.
