One of the newer calibers to catch the favor of long-range shooters is the 6mm Creedmoor. If it sounds familiar that is because the 6mm Creedmoor is a necked down version of the even more popular 6.5mm Creedmoor. While there is a definite following and demand for this new cartridge there are not a lot of components out on the mainstream market; at least in the way of brass. Lapua is now producing 6mm Creemoor brass to fill that void.

Lapua is known the world over for their high-quality components and now this craftsmanship on the small scale of brass can be found in the Creedmoor family. To key consumers in on the thoughtfulness they implement into their brass Lapua offers these component characteristics:

  • Properly Annealed at the Neck & Shoulder
  • Head Metallurgy specifically chosen for Durability
  • Small Rifle Primer, Small Flash-Hole Design that delivers the Ultimate Accuracy Edge
  • Box Count – 100 Pieces
  • MSRP – $129.99

Aside from this essential list of technical specifications, Lapua also provides a statement exuding their excitement for their newest offering of brass to handloaders.

Lapua is pleased to announce the availability of our new 6mm Creedmoor case, a necked down version of the extremely popular 6.5mm Creedmoor designed to produce higher velocities, flatter trajectories, and reduced recoil.

While the original 6.5 Creedmoor was designed with NRA High Power competition in mind, other disciplines, including PRS, were quick to see the positive attributes of this cartridge. We know Lapua’s latest offering will find a niche with discerning shooters in demanding competitive disciplines. Whether it’s a timed run against steel at unknown ranges, or the precision of placing shots in the X-ring, this Lapua case is just right for you!

According to Lapua, limited quantities will be available in September. For our TFB readers out there who own a 6mm Creedmoor, is this something you will be keeping on your radar? Or where are you currently sourcing most of your premium shooting brass? Let us know in the comments below!

    This has my attention, for sure. I also find it interesting that Starline started production of this one right away.

    My next precision rifle will be chambered for 6mm Creedmoor.

    Starline Brass has 250 pieces for $132. Much better deal

      @sarky Lapua prices are hideous, but that's what you pay for essentially bench-ready brass, drilled flash hole, etc.
