Sig Sauer has a new, self-defense ammo that looks promising.
Elite Performance Centerfire Pistol Ammunition features the SIG V-Crown stacked hollow point design that “provides a smaller additional hollow point cavity behind the main cavity. This design, along with V-shaped jackets skives and scores provides controlled, uniform expansion at all effective distances and velocities,” according to Sig officials.
It has a “unique toothed cannelure located halfway up the shank of the bullet to more effectively lock the jacket and core. This feature provides exceptional structural integrity in a jacketed design, ensuring maximum weight retention and outstanding terminal performance.”
Elite Performance ammo has a nickel-plated, brass case to reduce corrosion, enhances lubricity, and improves feeding and extraction, Sig officials say.
Sig Sauer has a detailed video on its website. Elite Performance is available in .380 AUTO, 9mm Luger, .357 Sig, .40 S&W and .45 AUTO and retails for $16-$22 for a box of 20.
