SIG Sauer has added .223 Rem. to its popular Match Grade Elite Performance Ammunition line. The new .223 Rem. Open Tip Match (OTM) round features a 77-gr. Sierra MatchKing bullet, and carries a muzzle velocity of 2,750 fps and muzzle energy of 1,293 ft.-lbs.

Designed to excel in today’s precision AR autoloading platforms as well as bolt-action rifles, the ammo features a temperature-stable propellant that delivers consistent muzzle velocity in all weather conditions. Premium-quality primers ensure minimum velocity variations, and the shell case metallurgy is optimized in the SIG Match Grade OTM cartridge to yield consistent bullet retention round to round.

“The .223 Rem. is one the most popular calibers on the market today, and our customers have been asking for it since we entered the ammunition business,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG Sauer Ammunition Division. “The accuracy and reliability of our new .223 Rem. Match Grade rifle ammunition make it an ideal choice for precision shooters—whether shooting in competitions or hunting varmints.”
