I like Sig own their prosucts and trust them- from a shooter perspective I am not understanding this product. Why do I want their expensive 55 grn ammo over someone else’s ammo that is much cheaper? If it had better performance maybe.
That said, my inability to understand doesn’t mean they are wrong.
Unless it exactly duplicates a carry load or does something other ball ammo doesn’t I don’t see a justification for the price. American Eagle is half this.
You neglect to mention the price.
I see it at Cabelas for $13.03 for a box of 20 rounds.
This is not target practice plinking ammo as I see Wolf Gold brass case ammo for $6.60 a box of 20.
You won’t go wrong buying anything with the Sig name on it.
This item is priced in the match grade ammunition range.
