SIG Sauer has announced Match Elite pistol competition ammunition, a soft-shooting, low-recoil load featuring coated nickel cases and fast, clean-burning powder. Available in 147-gr. 9 mm Luger, velocities will range from approximately 860 to 900 fps, depending on the type of pistol used. With a power factor between 126 and 132, these loads are legal for all USPSA competitions.

“This is the most accurate competition load I have ever shot,” said Max Michel, Jr., captain of Team SIG.  “The SIG Sauer Match Elite consistently delivers groupings of less than two inches at 25 yards versus four inches on average with other ammunition, making it the ideal choice for professional and everyday shooters who want to improve their performance.”

Brad Criner, senior director, brand management and business development for SIG Sauer Ammunition said the manufacturer always strives to improve upon existing products, and the new Match Elite pistol competition ammunition is another example of this.  “This load was developed by SIG ammunition engineers, working very closely with Max Michel and Lena Miculek, to be the ultimate pistol competition load,” he said. “The reduced charge weight delivers lower felt recoil, giving shooters an edge from a speed and accuracy standpoint.”

Currently the ammunition is only available online at sigsauer.com/store for $24.50 per box of 50 rounds. Cases of 10 boxes are also available while supplies last.
