SIG Sauer has announced an addition to its Elite Ammunition line: the high-performance M17 9 mm +P ammunition. The military-grade ammunition is available in 124-gr. SIG Elite V-Crown Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) personal defense loads, and SIG Elite Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) training loads. The SIG M17 ammunition can be used in any 9 mm +P rated pistol, including the SIG P320-M17.
“The commercial release of the civilian variant of the U.S. Army’s M17 pistol, the P320-M17, has been a tremendous success,” said Brad Criner, senior director brand management and business development for SIG Ammunition. “The M17 V-Crown and FMJ loads are both ballistically matched, making it easy for our customers to train with the ammunition they carry.”
Both loads have a muzzle velocity of 1,198 f.p.s. and muzzle energy of 395 ft.-lbs. SIG V-Crown ammunition features a stacked hollow point cavity for exceptional on-target energy with maximum weight retention and expansion for the ultimate stopping power. SIG FMJ training ammunition is engineered to match SIG V-Crown ballistics for a more seamless transition from training to carry ammunition and features durable, copper jacketed bullets offering the perfect combination of affordability and performance.
