Has anyone successfully tried to contact the Lapua Test Center East in Ohio? I have left voicemail messages that have not been returned and the same goes for email. I’m wondering if they are shut down or simply not responding. I would like to run my Vudoo through their testing.

Based on communications with western test center. I believe they were out for the holidays, came back on Jan 4. They might just be backed up and behind in communications.

I went up to see Luke in Ohio on Dec 21st. I took 3 guns and spent the better part of the day there. Well worth the trip!!! It was a little over a 10 hour drive one way for me, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Luke is a great guy to work with and I very much appreciate his time and effort to help me find the right ammo.

Shane et.al., thanks very much for the encouraging replies. I tried again yesterday to raise someone but without success. Perhaps they are busy. I will try Again next week. I’m a short drive away and look forward to making it happen.

Can't you take it with you if you call the dealer and pay right away?

From what I understand and what I was told is the test facilities only have ammo there to test. The ammo you purchase is shipped from their warehouse located in Missouri. I've only gone there once and that's the way it worked for me. It was a great experience.

That is correct. Lapua does not stock any of the ammo at the test facility.

I had mine 3 days after I tested so it isn't like it takes long to get it. The only thing that could affect that is who you order it from and if they know you or not meaning if they will have them ship it without paying first. The dealer I used just sent me an invoice once they know how much shipping was.

To draw this to closure I finally got in touch with Luke at the test center today. They were just covered up from the holidays etc. Much to my surprise he offered a number of opportunities to test in January and I picked one to fit my schedule. One question I did ask was weather or not I would be able to purchase ammo of the same lot that my rife liked. He assured me that I would.

Don't confuse purchasing it with taking it home with you. You will be able to tell him how much you want, but you will not be leaving with it. That may be your understanding, but don't want you to be disappointed if it's not.
