Newington, NH -(Ammolad.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable firearms, accessories, and ammunition, continues to expand its Elite Performance Ammunition line with the introduction of two new 10mm options – a 180gr 10mm Elite Performance V-Crown Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) and a 180gr Elite Performance Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) premium target load.
The 10mm Elite Performance V-Crown JHP is an extremely accurate load delivering consistent expansion. A distinct advantage of the SIG V-Crown is the toothed cannelure located halfway up the shank of the bullet. Its location more effectively locks the jacket and lead/alloy core, providing exceptional structural integrity in a jacketed bullet.
This design ensures maximum weight retention and energy on impact. The proprietary SIG V-Crown stacked hollow point bullet design, along with the V-shaped jacket skives, aids in providing controlled, uniform expansion. DUCTA–BRIGHT 7A coated brass cases also provide enhanced lubricity, offering superior corrosion resistance, and more reliable feeding and extraction in semi-automatic pistols.
“We are pleased to add this accurate, powerful round to our Elite Performance Ammunition line,” said Bud Fini, vice president of marketing for SIG SAUER. “The 10mm caliber with our proprietary 180-grain SIG V-Crown bullet is a great load for hunting mid-sized game and an ideal round for self-defense. And for target shooters, we now offer a 180gr 10mm Elite Performance FMJ round.”
