Lapua has manufactured Naturalis® bullets since 2002 and is now presenting the 3rd generation of the lead-free hunting bullet. The Naturalis® hunting bullets and cartridges can be used in hunting areas where lead core bullets are prohibited.

The new Naturalis® design uses state of the art technology to produce consistent, controlled expansion. The polymer valve design uses hydraulic force to create the optimum mushrooming effect at the widest velocity range on the market.

The bullet is designed and manufactured by using pure copper. The material, design and controlled expansion ensures a solid and nearly unbreakable construction. The weight retention, even after impacting on heavy bone, is frequently 100% of its original weight.

The boat tail design eases reloading, and together with the streamlined ogive provides improved downrange ballistics.

100 % weight retention!


The mushrooming of the bullet starts immediately on impact. The expansion process is started by the valve at the tip of the bullet, leading it to expand symmetrically and without fragmentation. This gives a maximal energy transfer to the hunted game, reduces the risk of wounding or lengthened suffering, and minimizes the meat loss.

This premium pure copper hunting bullet performs consistently, repeatedly retaining a full 100% of its weight after expansion. It does not leave anything in your valuable game meat - A clean shot.
