The Lapua cartridge factory was established in 1923 in Finland. From a modest and practical beginning, Lapua has grown into one of the most respected brands in the industry. 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, the staff personally inspects every lot and, if necessary, even each individual cartridge. The best shooters in the world choose Lapua ammunition and components.
