USA – -(Ammoland.com)- 300 AAC Blackout: Few cartridges have generated as much immediate interest as the 300 Blackout. Standardized by AAC, this diminutive cartridge is derived from the 223 Remington.

Intended specifically for use in suppressed firearms, the versatility of the Blackout has appealed to a much broader range of shooters than just the audience for which it was originally designed.

Intended to drive 220 grain bullets at subsonic velocities, the switch to lightweight bullets such as the 125 grain offerings delivers performance very similar to the venerable 7.62×39 cartridge. This makes the 300 Blackout potent enough for a wide range of shooting tasks, from certain tactical applications to many short range hunting situations involving medium sized game. The ability for many 5.56mm/223 systems to be switched over to the 300 Blackout, merely by changing barrels makes this an incredibly versatile combination.

Lapua brings over nine decades of case manufacturing knowledge, precision and quality to the new Blackout, assuring the shooter of the very best performance. Beginning with premium quality materials, carefully processed under the watchful eyes of our experienced production crew, Lapua quality assures correct dimensional tolerances, durability and accuracy throughout the life of the case, loading after loading. Strength, dimensional precision and long reloading life, Lapua’s precision cases are the standard by which all others are measured. Whether you’re after a national championship, or the trophy of a lifetime, Lapua delivers the very best to help you reach that goal.

7-08 Remington: Lapua is proud to announce the newest addition  to our line of premium cases; the 7mm-08  Remington. The 7mm-08 came to dominate the  High Power Silhouette rifle game shortly after its  introduction, offering a superb combination of power, light recoil and accuracy. Since then, it  has also been used to win National Championships in High Power competition, and become  a staple for hunters as well. With ballistic performance exceeding that of the time honored  7x57mm Mauser, but suited to a shorter action, the 7mm-08 is an ideal cartridge for most big game hunting.

Lapua brings our long standing tradition of using only the finest materials, along with state of the art manufacturing methods, combined with old world craftsmanship to the production of these cases. We start with a critically controlled drawing of only the best quality cartridge brass, carefully monitored, measured and verified at every step of the production process.

Primer pockets and flash holes are held to strict tolerances to withstand repeated firings and reloadings. After final necking of the case, they are finished with the proper anneal to ensure the ultimate in accuracy and durability. The new Lapua 7mm-08 cases are the perfect complement to our two new 7mm bullets, recently added to the Scenar line. Whether your passion is for the pursuit of x-rings or antlers, we provide the precision you require.

8x57mm IS: Truly one of the world’s great cartridges, the 8x57mm IS was perhaps the first incarnation of today’s modern sporting and hunting ammunition. When the cartridge was introduced in 1905, its innovative use of a high velocity and relatively light weight pointed bullet design revolutionized infantry combat. This caused virtually every army around the globe to redesign their own service rifles to accept similar bullets, merely to keep pace with this new development.

An outgrowth on the original 8x57J military round, the 8x57mm IS round served the German military in both world wars, and became a popular sporting cartridge in any area where there was a strong German influence. From African plains game to European stag and boar, the 8mm Mauser has earned an enviable reputation as a big game round in a wide array of conditions. Accurate, versatile and powerful, the 8x57mm IS still serves the sporting community well for a host of hunting applications.

Finally, in answer to the requests of the many devotees of this fine cartridge, Lapua is pleased to announce our introduction of the new 8x57mm IS case. This new offering follows in our usual standards of unmatched quality, using only the finest materials. With cartridge brass blended to our exacting specifications and then drawn to precise dimensional standards, the new 8x57mm IS will deliver the same accurate, reliable performance for which Lapua cases are world renowned. This means tough, durable cases that will not only withstand repeated loadings, but retain their accuracy shot after shot. Offering very tight tolerances in neck wall concentricity and overall uniformity, the handloading community will find these new cases to be the perfect choice for getting many of these fine rifles back into the fields again 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.
