I thought the whole idea by fireforming the 220 Russian brass, was to get brass that fits your chamber perfectly. Im quite sure Lapua could make 6ppc brass if the market wanted it.

Actually, any and all brass of every caliber fireforms to fit the chamber walls regardless of whether it is an "improved" cartridge or not. In the case of 6ppc's used in BR, often cases will not be used in big matches until it has been fireformed two or three times.
And Lapua could make straight 6ppc brass but they could also make ultra mags and they don't!
Oh, and forget about that odd-ball large caliber safari stuff. Even if it were made, the people buying it would not buy enough of it to make it worth doing right off the start. 20 pieces of 500 nitro will last a guy a long time but people shooting BR or any other match for that matter go through brass like water on a July afternoon.

If it's not far, it's boring.
