Lapua top quality ammunition, cases and bullets for centerfire and rimfire
Lapua focuses primarily on premium quality rimfire and centerfire ammunition and components for target shooters as well as for hunters and law enforcement authorities. Lapua has always strived to produce the best possible cartridges and ammunition components for those who have the same passion for precision as we do. Competition results worldwide prove that we are the preferred ammunition partner for rifle and pistol shooting champions, everywhere. We have achieved this by consistent product development of our ammo and components and our close cooperation with hunters as well as top sport shooters.
Lapua’s components are known by reloaders all over the world. The top quality and accuracy that are characteristic to all Lapua ammunition is achieved with precise combining of the cartridge components. Important cartridge qualities such as reliable and timely ignition, optimal muzzle velocity and excellent ballistic properties are the result of well designed and carefully manufactured brass and bullets.
A cartridge can be perfect when all ammo components match together perfectly, something top marksmen and competitive shooters reloading with Lapua brass and bullets know. Lapua offers a wide variety of cases and bullets for hunting, sport shooting and target purposes, for both centerfire rifle and pistol.
Lapua cases – the top brass choice for demanding reloaders
The base, body and neck of Lapua brass have been designed to maintain exact tolerances over multiple reloading cycles. Advanced metallurgical research and manufacturing techniques ensure that Lapua cases are leaders in uniformity and quality.
Lapua cases are the best in the world, a statement supported by all top marksmen. The .220 Russian, for example, is the number one brass choice of the best benchrest shooters all over the world.. All our cartridge cases are strong and uniformly precise. Lapua brass is manufactured to be reloaded, again and again. For reloaders who require absolut reliability from their ammunition, Lapua’s pistol and rifle cartridge components is the answer.
Lapua bullets are known all over the world
The Lapua Scenar match bullet represents the very high end of its class: it has achieved the 600/600 World Record in the 300 meter centerfire rifle prone event at the World Championships of the international sport shooting federation (ISSF). This result was made possible by Lapua’s consistent quality that starts with the raw materials of the bullet. Our bullets are practically handmade.
Continuous development of all bullet types
The D46, which we developed way back in the 1930s, is still one of the best industrial full metal jacket bullets. While development has focused on Lock Base and Hollow Point bullets that withstand high pressures, Lapua´s accuracy has just kept improving. We have also introduced the Scenar-L, the ultimate rifle match bullet, as well as the third generation lead-free Naturalis® hunting bullet selection.
The development of our bullet range continues all the time in steady steps, drawing from experience and with a keen ear for the reloaders´ needs. For marksmen, this development means exceedingly good cartridges and components for all kinds of target shooting disciplines. And for us, it means more and more stories about gold medals and records.
New Lapua Brass Cartridge Cases
Lapua, world-renowned for producing the finest cartridge cases and ammunition products, is happy to announce the addition of 6.5 PRC, .284 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .300 PRC cartridge cases to our 2021 product offering. Our new Lapua brass offerings for 2021 display our continued commitment to the precision shooting disciplines which are popular on a global scale.
The new Lapua 6.5 and .300 PRC cartridge cases provide competitive shooters, hunters and accuracy enthusiasts a premium selection for precision hand loads, an option that’s been missing from the market since the PRC’s inception.
The 6.5 PRC case
Although the 6.5 Precision Rifle Cartridge (or PRC for short) was originally designed for long range hunting, the 6.5 PRC is still an excellent cartridge for both long range sport shooting and hunting. Its increased case capacity enables velocities up to 80 m/s (262 fps) faster than the 6.5 Creedmoor or 6,5×55 SE. By design, the cartridge features a longer throat enabling the use of today’s popular, high ballistic coefficient (BC) projectiles for long-range competitions. The 6.5 PRC case is a good match with relatively slow burning powder types. It is a great choice for heavy bullets, exceeding even 9,7 g / 150 grains with excellent retained energy and terminal performance for mid-sized and large game.
The .300 PRC case
The .300 PRC was designed for extreme long range shooting with heavy bullets featuring high ballistic coefficients. Its superior ballistics and beltless case configuration represent modern case design that supports the use of modern long and high BC bullets. With its ability to load heavier bullets, the performance of the .300 PRC exceeds the .300 Winchester Magnum and many other .30 Magnums on the market. The .300 PRC is also an superb choice in open and large hunting fields for long distance hunting of mid-to-large sized game with bullet weights exceeding 15,8 g / 245 grains.
The .284 Winchester case
The .284 Winchester cartridge has experienced a recent resurgence in F-Class competition, where shooters compete to distances out to 1,000 m/yd. Members of the US Rifle Team, which Lapua sponsors, will enjoy having cases readily available in this classic cartridge. The .284 Winchester’s rebated rim design enables a larger powder column, yet easily functions through medium length actions making it desirable for custom rifles. Its accuracy potential and high muzzle velocity is also recognized in hunting fields where this cartridge performs nicely on a very wide scale.
The .300 Winchester Magnum case
The .300 Winchester Magnum has been a staple within the firearms industry, widely used by hunters, target shooters, military and law enforcement agencies around the globe since its development in the early 60’s. It is still used for competitive target shooting, hunting, and Mil/LE platforms to-date. It delivers excellent long range performance with a wide range of bullet weights from 165 to 200 grains and more. The .300 Winchester Magnum has a great reputation as a .30 caliber magnum hunting cartridge in Europe and North America. Lapua’s .300 Win. Mag case will be a great addition to our line, especially with the huge bullet selection available for sport shooting and hunting for this caliber and all major rifle manufacturers chamber their rifles for it.
All new Lapua cases will be available for home loaders in spring of 2021.
New Open Tip bullets and factory-loaded cartridges
For 2021, Lapua offers new Open Tip (OT) bullets and factory-loaded cartridges for target and hunting practice: Introducing the 8 mm OT bullet and 8×57 IS OT cartridge, and the 9.3mm OT bullet and 9.3×62 OT cartridge.
The 8×57 IS has earned a strong hunting reputation in recent years, but is now taking a step in the target shooting direction. Lapua Sales Manager, Erkki Seikkula, explains the thought process behind our new 8mm 7,8 g/ 120 grain OT bullet:
“We designed an easy and softly firing bullet that meets Lapua’s strict accuracy requirements. The precision of this bullet offers shooters the opportunity to practice with the same rifle that they hunt with. For avid hunters that enjoy target competitions, the performance of this projectile can really make a difference.”
A notable advantage of the bullet and the factory-loaded cartridge is that the bullet’s point of impact coincides with the Lapua Naturalis, making both products ideal for hunting practice.
The 9.3×62 has traditionally been used only with big game hunting in mind. Requirements have changed with time and today this rifle cartridge needs a bullet that offers a more diverse use of the caliber amongst hunters. Lapua has answered this demand and developed the world’s most accurate Open Tip bullet for this caliber, which extends its use to a diverse set of options from practice shooting to small predator hunting.
“The 9.3mm 12.0 g / 185 grain Open Tip bullet is available as a reloading bullet for home loaders, yet we also offer it as a factory-loaded cartridge for anyone for whom accuracy and performance matter when choosing a cartridge. Also here, the impact point of resembles that of the Naturalis bullet, making this the ultimate round for hunters training for big game hunts”, Seikkula says.
As with all Lapua products, ballistic data and trajectory information will be published on our website, with load data available by Vihtavuori Powders.
The new bullets and cartridges will be available in the beginning of 2021.
Lapua rimfire products
.22 LR rimfire ammunition for all disciplines
Lapua´s long experience in small-bore rimfire ammunition manufacturing shows in an outstanding series of medals and World Records. Lapua’s .22 long rifle cartridges bring success in every smallbore rifle discipline from traditional prone disciplines and silhouette shooting to precision rimfire and long range matches. For .22lr pistol shooters, we have two outstanding cartridges designed especially for handgun disciplines. Our uncompromising approach to quality is probably most evident in our rimfire cartridges. Although the quantity of shots fired is high, the marksman must be able to trust every single cartridge to work and hit its target accurately.

Whatever your smallbore shooting preference, you will find the right cartridge from our wide selection of .22 rimfire rounds: the X-Act, Midas+, Center-X, Polar Biathlon, Biathlon Xtreme, Pistol OSP and Pistol King. There is a .22lr round suitable for everyone, from the X-ACT, known as simply the world´s most accurate .22 caliber cartridge, to Biathlon Xtreme and Polar Biathlon, ammunition specifically designed for biathlon sport shooting.
Lapua .22 LR rimfire Service Center in Schönebeck, Germany
The Lapua .22 Service Center and its team is a partner for shooters from all around the world. Many international top shooters and world champions have already tested our facilities, and they are highly satisfied with the results.
The Lapua .22 Service Center has a 50m shooting range, completely equipped with digital measurement and several kinds of benches. This enables the shooter to exactly match the ammunition and the weapons for best possible results.

New 300 Winchester Magnum factory-loaded cartridges
New .300 Winchester Magnum cartridges for hunters and target shooters
For 2021, Lapua offers three new cartridges for .300 Winchester Magnum. The .300 Win Mag. is known for its extreme versatility and as such it’s a great cartridge option for hunters, target shooters, military and law enforcement departments alike. Lapua is happy to offer two new options for hunters and one for target shooters.
Hunting cartridges with significant stopping power
As the .300 Win Mag. is known for its accuracy, hunters have found the cartridge to be an effective all-around choice for various types of game and hunting conditions. Most firearms manufacturers chamber for this caliber and there are numerous rifle options to choose from. With the new .300 Win Mag. Lapua case we now also offer two new factory-loaded hunting cartridges:
- .300 Win Mag. loaded with the 11,0 gram / 170 grain Naturalis bullet and
- .300 Win Mag. loaded with the 12,0 gram / 185 grain SP MEGA bullet.
Both cartridges offer something for every hunter. A fan favorite for many years, the traditional MEGA is a lead core, mechanically bonded, soft point hunting projectile. The third generation Lapua Naturalis bullet with its special valve design offers a completely lead-free option with that perfect mushrooming effect. With muzzle velocities that enable extremely straight flight trajectories, these rounds are an obvious choice for long range hunting or for situations that demand significant stopping power.
Long range target accuracy with Lapua Scenar
For the demanding target shooters, long range enthusiasts and tactical units, Lapua offers the perfect cartridge option: the .300 Win Mag. with the 12,0 g / 185 gr OTM Scenar bullet. This round offers accuracy and power well beyond 1,000 meters/yards with the Scenar projectile staying supersonic. The unique design of the 185 grain Scenar (GB432) together with the short case neck and relatively short C.I.P cartridge specs create an undeniably powerful combination for long range shooters demanding peak accuracy.
All three Lapua cartridges will be hitting the markets in the spring of 2021.
Naturalis hunting ammunition and bullets
New Naturalis® third generation hunting ammunition
The new Naturalis® design uses state of the art technology to produce consistent, controlled expansion of the bullet in hunting situations. The bullet’s polymer valve design uses hydraulic force to create the optimum mushrooming effect at the widest velocity range on the hunting bullet market.
The Naturalis bullet is designed and manufactured by using pure copper. The material, design and controlled expansion ensures a solid and nearly unbreakable construction. The weight retention, even after impacting on heavy bone, is frequently 100% of the bullet’s original weight. The boat tail design of the bullet eases reloading, and together with the streamlined ogive it provides improved downrange ballistics.
Lapua has done extensive testing of the Naturalis ammunition in calibrated gelatin at a wide range of impact velocities.. This ammo testing guarantees uniform, predictable performance under the broadest range of hunting conditions. Consistent mushrooming of the bullet, reliable highest weight retention and excellent accuracy is assured.
