SIG SAUER Introduces M17 9mm +P Ammunition

Newington, N.H.-(Ammoland.com)- SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce the newest addition to the SIG SAUER Elite Ammunition product line – the high-performance M17 9mm +P ammunition. This military-grade ammunition is available in 124gr SIG Elite V-Crown Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) personal defense loads, and SIG Elite Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) training loads. SIG M17 ammunition is specifically engineered for exceptional performance in any 9mm +P rated pistol, including the SIG P320-M17.

“The commercial release of the civilian variant of the U.S. Army’s M17 pistol, the P320-M17, has been a tremendous success. We are excited to have the opportunity to offer the M17 9mm +P to our customers who want to shoot an ammunition that combines high-quality SIG performance with a military-grade +P ammunition,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “The M17 V-Crown and FMJ loads are both ballistically-matched, making it easy for our customers to train with the ammunition they carry.”

Both loads have a muzzle velocity of 1,198 fps and muzzle energy of 395 ft.-lbs. SIG V-Crown ammunition features a stacked hollow point cavity, to deliver exceptional on-target energy with maximum weight retention and expansion for the ultimate stopping power. SIG FMJ training ammunition is engineered to match SIG V-Crown ballistics for a more seamless transition from training to carry ammunition and features durable, copper jacketed bullets offering the perfect combination of affordability and performance.

  • M17 124gr 9mm +P V-Crown — $ 20.95 (per box of 20 rounds)

    Does anyone know if the primer is sealed? I’ve got an email into Sig to find out. If the primer isn’t sealed then I wouldn’t qualify this as military grade ammo.

    Was the all caps really necessary? It just makes your comment sound like you’re shouting at me the whole time.

    AMMO NOT FAST ENOUGH FOR NATO GRADE 124 GR FMJ AMMO…1250 FPS IS STANDARD VELOCITY IN A 5 INCH BBL. SUCH AS IN A WALTHER P-38 OR BARRETA M-9, BOTH MILSPEC HANDGUNS WHICH SHOOT NATO AMMO. I KNOW BECAUSE I’VE CHRONO’D REAL 9MM ISSUE NATO AMMO AND USED IT IN MY MP-5 AND ISSUED WALTHER P-7.(SPECOPS).

    Did you test the 1250 fps ammo you use in a sig p320 m17?

    Did you run your 1250 fps ammo out of a sig p320 m17?

    They posted “1,198 FPS” basically 1200 FPS. NATO standard is “1250 FPS From a 5″ BBL. the m17 is a hair over 4 1/2” BBL. Plus the fact that the standard deviation is likely 12-20 FPS, the remaining 30 FPS is negligible, I KNOW THIS BECAUSE, I KNOW WHERE THE CAPS LOCK KEY IS!!! And I have a plenty of experience loading and testing ammunition both professionally and privately, while also being a U.S Veteran (10 yrs active duty) and small arms marksman ( I shoot DA gunz with extreme accuracy and get ribbons for it)

    Thank you for the additional info on the ammo, it sounds like a reasonable choice for a carry pistol given your information. I have always liked Sig-Sauer pistols and look forward to trying this stuff!

    Thank you for the information. The reason I asked my question is the Sig has a 4.7″ barrel, which you pointed out. I agree totally with your comment. I have a P320 compact with the included Sig red dot sight. I carry a Sig P365 loaded with Sig 124 grn HPs, 13 rounds and cross draw holster. Invisible and potent.
