Lapua is pleased to announce the opening of our new Rimfire Service Center in Mesa, Arizona. Patterned after the world renowned Lapua Service Center in Schönebeck, Germany, this facility gives American shooters the same opportunity to test not only various types, but also different lots of rimfire ammunition, in their firearms, under tightly controlled conditions. This assures that the customer will be able to purchase not only the best type of ammunition for his or her particular rifle, but the specific lots of that ammo that performs best in their guns. Any competitive shooter with experience in the rimfire field knows that the ability to select a lot of ammunition that performs best in their firearm means a world of difference in a match. Until now, the ability of a shooter to do this vital testing was dependent on the small quantities of ammunition of various lots on hand, generally without any guarantee that a vendor could provide more of whatever lot turned in the best results. Lapua will maintain an inventory of approximately two million rounds of rimfire ammunition on site, of a variety of different types and grades, and of many different lots. Our goal is that you, the shooter, will be able to purchase sufficient quantities of the best ammo for your needs. In future matches, you'll be able to know that the ammo you take to the line is truly the very best available.
At the heart of our operation is the new 100 meter test tunnel. Fully instrumented with state of the art Meyton electronic targeting systems, our Mesa facility offers the unique ability to test ammunition at both 50 meters and 100 meters, simultaneously with a single string. As the bullets pass through the screen at 50 meters, a group will appear on the first targeting screen. As the bullet continues its flight downrange, it will also be picked up on a second screen at the 100 meter line. This approach allows the shooter to see, instantly, which ammunition performs best at both the shorter and longer distances.
The Lapua Rimfire Service Center is located on the grounds of Nammo Tactical Ammunition, just outside Phoenix, about 20 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. With ready accessibility, a wide variety of convenient hotels, restaurants and entertainment, the Mesa facility may be the perfect site for such center.
