It’s perhaps once in a generation that we see a new rifle cartridge come along and re-define the paradigm. New rifle cartridges are not that rare, but those that re-write the rules are, and the 6mm Creedmoor changed the world of shooting.
The cartridge was very mission-specific in its design. Its stated purpose is for long range target shooting, and the cartridge was designed specifically for long, sleek, high-ballistic-coefficient, heavy-for-calibre bullets. The cartridge stays supersonic and maintains its accuracy to past 1,200 yards.
Lapua cases are the best in the world. The base, body and neck of Lapua cases have been designed to maintain exact tolerances over multiple reloading cycles. Advanced metallurgical research and manufacturing techniques ensure that Lapua cases are leaders in uniformity and quality.
