    How is Lapua actually pronounced? I've heard several different variations and would like to know the proper one.

    BB,

    Myself and JRC36 would be looking for the Mississippi pronunciation of the word! Trust me we live bout 3 miles from each other.

    The alabama version might be close for myself being from
    NW FLAARIDA.... better known as LA...might need a lil help!

    Roy thats how they spells it on my DL, Not that that means anything!

    By the way Roy you the one shooting does at 890 yards on the video my dad sent me? Had a trailer set up as a bench, gun looked like a LSS......reason I ask is the guy filming called the shooter "ROY". /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
