SIG SAUER® Introduces 38 Special, 44 S&W Special and 45 Colt Elite Performance Ammunition

Newington, NH (January 5, 2016) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to introduce its first revolver ammunition for personal defense in 38 Special, 44 S&W Special and 45 Colt. All three calibers are available in the SIG V-Crown jacketed hollow point (JHP) round of Elite Performance Ammunition in the following bullet weights: 125gr 38 Special with a muzzle of velocity of 900 fps; 240gr 44 S&W Special with a muzzle velocity of 800 fps; and 230gr 45 Colt with a muzzle velocity of 950 fps. SIG SAUER proprietary V-Crown stacked hollow point is especially effective for personal defense, delivering maximum accuracy, reliable, uniform expansion and optimal terminal performance. DUCTA–BRIGHT 7ATM coated brass cases also provide enhanced lubricity and superior corrosion resistance.

“With the recent proliferation of small frame revolvers for personal defense, the demand for ammunition in these calibers is growing significantly,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division. “SIG SAUER continues to expand caliber offerings for handgun shooters, which now includes the revolver market, and there will be introductions of additional revolver calibers in the coming weeks.”

The 38 Special is also available in SIG FMJ full metal jacket loads. Designed specifically for practice and competition shooting, these premium target rounds feature solid brass cases and durable, copper- jacketed bullets that remain intact on impact. The precise, uniform profile of the SIG FMJ bullets results in maximum accuracy and consistency, while dependable primers and clean burning powders are used for reduced barrel fouling with more reliable functioning.

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. For more information, visit -more- PR Contact: Shannon Jackson Shannon Jackson P.R. (804) 343-3608
