SIG Sauer has introduced its first revolver ammunition for personal defense.

The The SIG V-Crown jacketed hollow point (JHP) round of Elite Performance Ammunition is offered in .38 Spl., .44 S&W Spl. and .45 Colt calibers, and in the following bullet weights: 125-gr. .38 Spl. with a muzzle of velocity of 900 fps; 240-gr. .44 S&W Spl. with a muzzle velocity of 800 fps; and 230-gr. .45 Colt with a muzzle velocity of 950 fps. DUCTA–BRIGHT 7A coated brass cases also provide enhanced lubricity and superior corrosion resistance. 

“With the recent proliferation of small-frame revolvers for personal defense, the demand for ammunition in these calibers is growing significantly,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG Sauer Ammunition Division.  “SIG Sauer continues to expand caliber offerings for handgun shooters, which now includes the revolver market, and there will be introductions of additional revolver calibers in the coming weeks.”

The .38 Spl. is also available in SIG full-metal-jacket (FMJ) loads. Designed specifically for target practice and competition shooting, these premium target rounds feature solid brass cases and durable, copper-jacketed bullets that remain intact on impact. The precise, uniform profile of the SIG FMJ bullets results in maximum accuracy and consistency, while dependable primers and clean burning powders are used for reduced barrel fouling with more reliable functioning.

All Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured in the United States by SIG Sauer to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles. For more information, visit sigsauer.com/ammunition.
