Newington, NH (January 7, 2016) – SIG SAUER, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable firearms, suppressors, optics, ammunition, airguns, and accessories, adds to its revolver ammunition offerings with the introduction of 357 Magnum and 44 Rem Mag SIG V-Crown jacketed hollow point (JHP) hunting rounds. The 357 Magnum is available in 125gr V-Crown with a muzzle velocity of 1450 fps, and the 44 Rem Mag V-Crown features a 240gr bullet with a muzzle velocity of 1300 fps.
These powerful, accurate rounds are excellent for hunting mid-sized game. SIG V-Crown combines perfected material specifications and fine-tuned design innovations, using a stacked hollow point cavity, to deliver exceptional on-target energy with maximum weight retention and optimal expansion – for ultimate stopping power. DUCTA–BRIGHT 7A™ coated brass cases also provide enhanced lubricity, offering superior corrosion resistance, and more reliable feeding and extraction.
“The 357 Magnum and 44 Rem Mag calibers are quite popular with handgun hunters,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division. “These are accurate and powerful loads for hunting mid-sized animals such as hogs and deer, and they are also a top choice among hunters who carry a pistol for backup protection in the field.”
The 357 Magnum is also available in SIG FMJ target loads. SIG FMJ ammunition is designed to approximate the performance of the corresponding SIG V-Crown jacketed hollow point rounds, making a seamless transition from target shooting on the range to hunting in the field. Muzzle velocity for the 357 Magnum SIG FMJ is identical to the V-Crown load at 1450 fps.
All Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured in the United States by SIG SAUER to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles.
