Lapua of Finland is introducing two new cartridge casings in 2024, namely the 300 Winchester Short Magnum (WSM) and 6mm GT. According to Lapua, the 300 WSM provides many advantages among magnum cartridges, delivering energy equal to the 300 Win Mag. It’s conveniently integrated into a short-action rifle design.

Lapua @ TFB:

The 6mm GT is introduced due to its massive growth and use in competition shooting series like PRS, NRL, and similar disciplines. It’s a high-performing short-action cartridge using the latest 6mm projectiles, with low recoil. The cartridge geometry is based on the original 6.5×47 Lapua parent case.

Here is the presentation of the new cartridges from Lapua ( Source):
