221 Remington Fireball
Introduced by Remington in 1963 in the new XP-100 bolt action pistol, this groundbreaking cartridge set new standards for handgun performance. The Fireball has recently seen a dramatic surge in popularity, due in large part to the efforts of wildcatters working with this versatile case. The 17 Fireball was one of the early offspring, but the diminutive case would eventually be necked down even further, and upwards to the 30 caliber. With such popular numbers as the 20 VarTarg and the 300 Black Out, the .221 Fireball case is more popular today than ever. So it is with satisfaction that we bring traditional Lapua quality to this proven cartridge. Whether used in its original form, or necked into one of the many cases that it serves as a parent for, the Lapua .221 Fireball is a sure winner.
50 BMG Match
Lapua is pleased to introduce our two newest additions to the Scenar family of match bullets, and our return to the 7mm bore size. Our 150 grain Scenar-L is well suited to short to intermediate range target shooting in a wide variety of disciplines, from Silhouette to Across the Course High Power competition. We look forward to this new addition to take its place in the winner’s circle very shortly!
The bigger brother to the 150 grain ScenarL, the 180 Scenar is our long range performer for the most demanding competitions. If Prone shooting, F-Class, or Long Range Benchrest competitions are on the agenda, the new 180 Grain ScenarL will deliver superb accuracy and ballistic performance. Suitable for use in a broad range of cartridges, such as the 7mm Remington Magnum, the 7mm WSM and SAUM, this addition rounds out Lapua’s line for an incredibly wide array of competitive disciplines.

11,0 g / 170 gr FMJBT Lock-Base SEMI-AUTO
Lapua’s newest special purpose cartridge has been developed specifically for use in short barreled semi-auto rifles. Designed for optimum ballistic performance in the shorter (12”-20”) barrel lengths, we’ve tailored the powder type and charge weights to reduce muzzle blast and flash signature while still delivering outstanding accuracy and velocity. From a standard 16” barrel, muzzle velocity should be 750 m/s, and routinely capable of achieving groups under 1 MOA at 300 m (<87mm / 300 m) during our routine testing. Our new short barrel special purpose ammunition assures flawless operation with DMR-type semi-auto rifles.
