SIG SAUER announced the expansion of their 9mm Elite Performance Ammunition.
The expansion includes 124gr and 147gr bullet weights, which now brings the SIG 9mm offering to 115gr, 124gr, and 147gr. The Bullets are available in both V-Crown Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) personal defense ammo and SIG Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) target loads.
The offering of SIG FMJ ammunition is meant to approximate the performance of JHP loads. The idea is to offer the closest training experience with the FMJ ammo to that of the personal defense JHP ammo.
Dan Powers, Preisdent of SIG SAUER Ammunition Division has quoted on the new offering;SIG FMJ ammunition is designed specifically for practice and competition shooting, and given the sheer popularity of the 9mm caliber, expanding the FMJ line to mirror the V-Crown offerings was an important next step. These premium target rounds feed as smoothly as our V-Crown JHP rounds and perform and feel almost identical to the V-Crown loads when shooting, making them ideal practice rounds.The ammunition is manufactured to meet or exceed SAAMI specifications and is manufactured by SIG SAUER at its manufacturing facility in Jacksonville Arkansas.
