Exciting news as Sig – one of the big players in firearms – rolls out their own line of defensive ammo.
There was big news during the past few months from SIG Sauer with the introduction of their own line of Elite Performance handgun ammunition. It’s available in several popular calibers, all featuring the new SIG V-Crown jacketed hollowpoint. This ammunition is available in five introductory calibers and grain weights.
According to SIG, the lineup includes a .380 ACP with a 90-grain pill clocking a reported 980 fps at the muzzle, a 9mm topped by a 124-grain projectile scooting out at 1,189 fps and a .357 SIG pushing a 125-grainer at a sizzling 1,356 fps.
Up the ladder from there is a 165-grain pill in .40 S&W that leaves the muzzle at a reported 1,090 fps and naturally there’s a .45 ACP load that launches a 200-grain JHP at 918 fps.
Gun Digest has learned that there will be five more bullet weights in three calibers, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP, and the line will quickly be expanding to include tactical and hunting rifle ammunition, the first of which will be a .300 Blackout load. (sigsauer.com)
