Lapua 50 BMG Brass in early April '14

AccurateShooter is reporting that Lapua will be producing 50 BMG Match brass - to be available in the US in early April (2014). See Lapua 2014 News — .221 Fireball and .50 BMG Brass, 7mm Bullets Daily Bulletin

And with Hornady recently announcing 50 BMG "match" brass....WOW!!!

Wish they would resume production of 300 Win Mag brass. Can't figure out how they couldn't have made a good profit producing brass for this cartridge.

I'm pretty sure the 300 win mag lapua brass was produced for them by Norma.

Heard rumblings of this earlier in the year and have been excited to get some in hand. Curious what price will be and of course quality.

The strength of the case will really not be an advantage as any 50 BMG case that is quality will easily support anything the 50 BMG should be loaded to but it would be good to get some brass that did not need a lot of sorting or bench prep work to get a quality lot of brass for long range precision with the 50 BMG or its wildcats!!!

Time will tell. As with most Lapua brass, I am sure it will be top quality, very curious what price will end up at!!!

I really am amazed that Lapua is offering a 221 Fireball offering. That does not make a lot of sense to me but hey, there must be a reason.

I agree on that Kirby. I'd have to think there'd be more interest in 300 Ultra brass than 221 Fireball. 300 brass could be necked down to 7mm or up to 338. Maybe they should make 375 too
