Serious hand loaders and shooters seek to match the perfect cartridge to their firearm. The team here at Lapua understands this, and has made our “Passion for Precision” the blueprint for our success.

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 manufactures centerfire cartridges in Lapua, Finland, and rimfire cartridges in Schonebeck, Germany.

The finest cartridges and reloading components

Lapua focuses primarily on premium quality small caliber ammunition for target shooters, hunters and military 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. We also cooperate closely with hunters as well as top sport shooters.

Reliable and accurate ammunition

The world famous quality of Lapua 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, perfectly compatible with the case and the bullet. We work together with the leading gun powder and primer manufacturers to 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.
