First Look: SIG Sauer FMJ Centerfire Pistol Cartridges
March 30, 2015
SIG Sauer continues to expand its line of Elite Performance Ammunition to include full metal jacket (FMJ) centerfire pistol cartridges.
The new FMJ ammunition is designed to mimic the performance of SIG's corresponding jacketed hollow point (JHP) loads to ensure a smooth transition from affordable training ammo to carry and personal defense ammo.
The SIG Sauer FMJ ammunition is available in the following calibers and bullet weights:
- 100-grain .380 Auto
- 115-grain 9mm Luger
- 124-grain .357 SIG
- 180-grain .40 S&W
- 180-grain 10mm
- 230-grain .45 Auto
"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."
Featuring solid brass cases, copper jacketed bullets, dependable primers and clean-burning powders, all of the new FMJ ammo is manufactured to meet or exceed SAAMI specifications. As with previous Elite Performance Ammunition, SIG's new FMJ cartridges are manufactured entirely in the United States.
