SIG Sauer has expanded its Elite Performance Ammunition line to include full-metal-jacket (FMJ) center-fire pistol cartridges for practice and competition shooting. Now available in 100-gr. .380 Auto; 115-gr. 9 mm Luger; 124-gr .357 SIG; 180-gr .40 S&W; 180-gr. 10 mm and 230-gr. .45 Auto, the new SIG FMJ ball ammunition is designed to approximate the performance of corresponding jacketed hollow point (JHP) loads, making for a seamless transition from target ammo to carry ammo.

“With the SIG FMJ ammunition, we now have extremely accurate and reliable rounds designed specifically for practice and competition shooting,” said Bud Fini, vice president of marketing for SIG Sauer. “We wanted to give our customers an affordable premium target load that feeds as smoothly as our JHP ammunition and also performs and feels almost identical to the JHP load when shooting. We designed our copper-coated lead bullets to have the most precise, uniform profile and the result is consistent accuracy.”

Made in the U.S. and manufactured to meet or exceed SAAMI specifications, the SIG FMJ center-fire pistol cartridges feature solid brass cases and durable copper jacketed bullets that stay with the lead at impact. Clean-burning powders are used for reduced barrel fouling with more reliable functioning. For more, visit sigsauer.com/ammunition.
