Lapua cases – A top brass choice for demanding reloaders
The base, body and neck of Lapua brass 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.
Lapua cases are the best in the world, a statement supported by all top marksmen. The .220 Russian, for example, is the number one brass choice of the best benchrest shooters all over the world. All our cartridge cases are strong and uniformly precise. Lapua brass is manufactured to be reloaded, again and again. For reloaders who require absolute reliability from their ammunition, Lapua’s pistol and rifle cartridge components is the answer.
The Base of the Case
The Lapua case heads are drawn exceptionally hard for unmatched reloadability and for an exceptionally long life cycle to serve top shooters time and time again. The brass dimensions remain constant and will hold primers tight in their pockets even after many reloadings.
The Brass Body
The brass body section of Lapua cases is hard and resilient for unmatched durability. It is easy to extract after firing, whether the reloader opts for full sizing or neck sizing only.
The Case Neck
Strict tolerances in concentrity and wall thickness are used in manufacturing of the case neck. The neck and shoulder of Lapua cases are annealed to withstand repeated reloading.

The Foundation of Hornady Ammunition
Hornady brass is the foundation for what could be the most memorable shot of your lifetime. Extra time and care is taken in the creation of hornady cases, producing smaller lots that meet strict quality standards.
Hornady cases offer reloaders excellent uniformity in wall thickness, weight and internal capacity. They measure for consistently tight wall concentricity and even run cases through a pressure calibration test to ensure uniform case expansion during firing.
These cases allow proper seating of the bullet, not only in the case, but in the chamber as well. High quality brass contributes to consistent charges and pressures.
Tight Wall Concentricity
Concentricity helps to ensure proper bullet seating in both the case and the chamber of your firearm. Higher concentricity also aids in a uniform release of the bullet on firing, for optimal velocity and accuracy.
Uniform Case Wall Thickness
Benchrest shooters have long known that uniform case wall thickness is vital to accuracy. Hornady manufacture to extremely tight tolerances to ensure this critical element is as consistent as possible.
More Reloads Per Case
Hornady sees their brass as the foundation for an accurate cartridge, not a commodity. Because Hornady take greater care in their creation you’ll get more reloads from the brass.
Consistant Weight and Capacity
Every single Hornady case, regardless of the lot in which it was produced, is virtually identical to other Hornady cases in the same calibre. For you, this means consistent pressures, velocity and accuracy — every time.
