The 6mm BR ("Bench rest") cartridge existed as a non-standardized wildcat from the 1960s onward and was commercialized in 1978 by Remington. The 6mm BR Norma variant appeared in 1996 and was (not surprisingly) introduced by Swedish manufacturer Norma. The Norma's most prominent feature is its long, low-drag bullet. As its name suggests, the 6mm BR is a favorite of bench rest shooters who prize accuracy above all else.
Lapua is a Scandinavian ammunition manufacturer known for producing high-end rimfire and long-range centerfire rifle cartridges.
