Back in January, SIG Sauer announced that it was entering the ammunition business with the introduction of its Elite Performance Ammunition. That ammunition, using V-Crown jacketed hollow-point bullets that are designed to provide superior accuracy, reliability and performance, is now available.

The SIG V-Crown stacked hollow-point design provides a smaller additional hollow-point cavity behind the main cavity. This design, along with V-shaped jackets skives and scores provides controlled, uniform expansion at all effective distances and velocities.

The SIG Sauer Elite Performance V-Crown bullet has a unique toothed cannelure located halfway up the shank of the bullet to more effectively lock the jacket and core. This feature provides exceptional structural integrity in a jacketed design, ensuring maximum weight retention and outstanding terminal performance.

A nickel plated brass case reduces corrosion, enhances lubricity, and improves feeding and extraction. The Elite Performance Ammunition is available in .380 ACP, 9 mm, .357 Sig, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.
