Lapua has manufactured Naturalis® bullets since 2002 and has now introduced the 3rd generation of the leadfree hunting bullet. The Naturalis hunting bullets and cartridges represent the newest technology of bullet manufacturing and are market leaders in terminal ballistic performance. Naturalis hunting ammunition can be used in hunting areas where lead core bullets are prohibited.
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.
