Passion for Precision

About Lapua

Lapua, or more officially Nammo Lapua Oy and Nammo Schönebeck, is part of the large Nammo Group. Our main products are small caliber cartridges and components for sport, hunting and professional use.

Lapua quality cartridges and reloading components

Lapua focuses primarily on premium quality small caliber ammunition for target and sport shooters as well as for hunters and law enforcement authorities. Lapua has always strived to produce the best possible cartridges and components for those who have the same passion for precision as we do. The results from various competitions worldwide prove that we are the preferred ammunition partner for 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 in rifle and pistol events.

Good listeners - even with hearing protection on

The world famous quality of Lapua´s bullets, brass and cartridges comes from decades of experience, infallible raw materials and a well-managed manufacturing process. Despite the automation in production and quality assurance, our staff personally inspects every ammunition lot and, if necessary, even each individual cartridge. The finishing touch of the carefully controlled manufacturing process is the primer and powder, which are perfectly compatible with the case and the bullet. Working together with the leading powder and primer manufacturers, we carefully choose the powder and a dependable primer that best fits each cartridge type. Reliability and accuracy of the ammunition we produce is continuously proven in test shootings. 

The most important thing is, however, listening to the people who use our ammunition. Every inquiry is taken seriously and analyzed thoroughly. 

Close cooperation with other manufacturers in the industry

We do extensive testing on our cartridges and components with different caliber rifles to be sure our products are functional and accurate also in extreme environments. The Lapua ammunition is however only part of a functional weapon system. That is why we strive to work together with the most important rifle manufacturers so that shooters can always rely on Lapua cartridges, cases and bullets functioning in different manufacturers´ rifles.

Naturally, our high quality is also certified: Nammo Lapua Oy´s quality system conforms with both ISO 9001 and AQAP 2110. We have also been awarded the ISO 14001 environmental system certificate.
