Lapua Brand

Good listeners - even with hearing protection on.

Naturally, Lapua´s world famous quality comes partly from decades of experience, infallible raw material and a well-managed manufacturing process. Despite the automation in production and quality assurance, our staff personally inspects every lot and, if necessary, even each individual cartridge. 

The most important thing is, however, listening to the shooters. This comes second nature to Lapua. Every inquiry is taken seriously and analyzed thoroughly, even with test shooting, if necessary. Close interaction with the shooters ensures that the feedback is understood correctly. This enables the shooters worldwide to get exactly the quality they want - step by step towards something even better. 

Matching components.

The top quality and accuracy that are characteristic to all Lapua cartridges is achieved with precise combining of the components. Reliable and timely ignition, optimal muzzle velocity and excellent ballistic properties are the result of well designed and carefully manufactured components. A cartridge can be perfect when all components match together perfectly. The reloaders using Lapua components know this.

Certified quality.

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.
