SIG Sauer has expanded its Match Grade Elite Performance Ammunition line for rifles to include a 168-gr. 308 Win load. Featuring a 168-gr. Sierra MatchKing bullet, the 308 Win Open Tip Match (OTM) round has a muzzle velocity of 2,700 fps with a muzzle energy of 2,719 ft-lbs.

SIG’s engineers designed this round to excel in both auto-loaders as well as bolt-action rifles in order to meet the growing needs of today’s precision shooters. “Retailers have been asking us for additional calibers in our Match Grade rifle ammunition due to the shortage of supply in the market,” said Dan Powers, president of SIG Sauer’s Ammunition Division. “Our new 308 Win Match Grade OTM Elite Performance Ammunition delivers the accuracy and reliability precision shooters require and will help SIG retailers meet customer demand.”

The cartridge features a temperature-stable propellant designed to deliver consistent muzzle velocity in all weather conditions, and premium-quality primers to ensure minimum velocity variations. SIG’s rifle ammunition is precision loaded on state-of-the-art equipment that is 100 percent electromechanically monitored for geometric conformity and charge weight consistency.
