FIND THE PERFECT RIMFIRE AMMO TO MATCH YOUR FIREARM

Testing is performed from a machined rest in a controlled environment, eliminating the variables associated with outdoor testing, shooter fatigue, and operator error. The barreled action of the rifle is first removed from the stock then mounted into a precision machined bedding block. This block is then put into our return to battery fixture, which is attached to a large concrete block that has its own foundation separate from the rest of the building. We take these steps to ensure that as many variables as possible are removed during the testing process. This helps us to provide you with the most reliable testing data you can find.

The Lapua rimfire test centers are a partner for shooters from all around the world. Our customers include numerous international top shooters and world champions.

Our mission is to provide serious competitors an opportunity to select the very best rimfire ammunition, matched specifically to their firearms. To that end, we offer the ability to test a variety of different types and lots of Lapua rimfire ammunition at our facilities in Germany, USA, Finland and Norway. Find your closest location below!

Lapua Rimfire Performance Centers – USA

Lapua has been operating the Lapua Rimfire Performance Center West in Mesa, Arizona, USA since 2012. This rimfire testing center is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and was modelled after the world renowned Lapua Rimfire Service Center in Schönebeck, Germany. This facility gives all competitive shooters access to the same level of testing that Olympians around the world have used for years to get a competitive edge.

We opened the Lapua Rimfire Performance Center East at the Cardinal Shooting Center in Marengo, Ohio, USA in 2020. This new rimfire testing center has all the same testing capabilities of our Mesa location, at a more convenient location for our East Coast based customers.

Overview of Testing Procedure 

Testing normally takes from two to four hours.

Unless otherwise requested, the barreled action of the rifle is first removed from the stock then mounted into a precision machined bedding block that is custom made for your type of action (when available). This block is then put into our return to battery fixture, which is attached to a large concrete block that has its own foundation separate from the rest of the building. We take these steps to ensure that as many variables as possible are removed during the testing process. This helps us to provide you with the most reliable testing data you can find.

Generally, we test six to eight lots per rifle. The number of rounds fired will vary from one lot to another, with the more promising lots being tested again to verify repeatable performance in your rifle. Those lots showing less than promising results will not be pursued. If you are present during the testing, we will go over the results together in real time. If you mailed in your rifle, we will email you the results so that you can see the actual targets fired and select one or more lots based on the groups presented.

Once you have selected your ammo lot, it may be purchased directly through the Lapua Rimfire Performance Center or your usual supplier. For more information and to book your appointment today, visit capstonepg.com/rpc/.
