SIG Sauer Introduces SIG FMJ Centerfire Pistol Cartridges

SIG Sauer Inc., designer and manufacturer of firearms, accessories, and ammunition, continues to expand its popular Elite Performance Ammunition line with the introduction of full metal jacket (FMJ) centerfire pistol cartridges for practice and competition shooting. Marketed as the perfect combination of affordability and performance, the new SIG FMJ ball ammunition is designed to approximate the performance of corresponding jacketed hollow point (JHP) loads, making the transition from target ammo to carry ammo seamless.

The SIG FMJ pistol ammunition is now available in the following calibers and bullet weights: 100gr .380Auto, 115gr 9mm Luger, 124gr .357SIG, 180gr .40S&W, 180gr 10mm and 230gr .45Auto.

"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."

Manufactured to meet or exceed SAAMI specifications, the SIG FMJ centerfire pistol cartridges feature solid brass cases and durable copper jacketed bullets that stay with the lead at impact. Dependable primers and clean-burning powders are used for reduced barrel fouling with more reliable functioning. Like all Elite Performance Ammunition, the SIG FMJ is manufactured in the United States by SIG Sauer to the same exacting standards as the company's premium pistols and rifles.
