    I say this jokingly, and will continue buying their products, but I've become convinced nobody ever wins a thing from the Lapua club 'code' registrations; at least for their more common brass (.223/308 Palma etc.).

    I didn't use to bother registering, but I've submitted ~20 'codes' in the past ~year and haven't won a damn thing. I've also never met anybody who has.

    So...any of you guys ever hit the jackpot? What do they give out? Free brass for life? Branded pens?

    I won a hat long ago. I’ve put codes in that tell me it’s not valid! Go figure....
    Only brass I use.

    It's a great question. On my 2nd entry I won a hat. It came in and my youngest step-boy wanted it, I thought sure I'm sure I will get something again. Four years later and I still have won anything else. Well, the boy grins every time he wear's the hat..

    Not as lucky as the two guys in my platoon in USMC boot camp, who were pulled out of the Army draftee line and sent to San Diego for 12 weeks. Lucky dogs that they were.

    Ha. I submitted numerous codes over years. Never won anything “instantly“ from a entered code, just the items that you receive after so many entries (hat, keychain, mousepad, usb drive.....). (Not sure if they even do it that way anymore, been awhile since I entered a code)

    On the other hand I won a scope stand from Creedmoor during their anniversary giveaway, so I probably won’t win anything for another twenty years now.

    Nothing. Nada. But then I've only done 2. You can tell that it's a marketing scam. A one in a million chance to win 25 cents worth of marketing swag. Not worth my time. I'll continue to buy the product though as long as the quality is there. And the quality is there. When it comes to brass they are the best in the business. Wish they would expand the range of calibers they supply brass for though.

    I am switching to Peterson brass. My prize is knowing I am getting first class brass made in the USA. Somewhere out there is an American worker who is able to care for his (or her) family because of Peterson. As long as they keep the quality up I will keep buying it. Lapua is not the only game in town anymore.

    Got the incorrect code on the first one. Never bothered with them again. If ADG made brass for all my cartridges, I'd dump Lapua in a heartbeat.

    Since I've started shooting Starline Match .308 I haven't waisted any time entering codes and not winning a dang thing. Rifle shoots the same and brass lasts just as long, so I guess I did win something. More money stays in my pocket.
