If you’ve been shooting for any amount of time, you know that the ammo that you use is as important (or maybe more important) than the firearm that you use for shooting. Why? Because crappy ammo causes all kinds of problems in not just getting an accurate shot but in actually getting a shot off when you need it.
With that in mind, if you have a firearm that uses 9mm ammunition, you may be interested to know about Sig Sauer’s new ammunition. Chris Eger gives us the details:
On Thursday, Sig introduced two new offerings to their house-branded ammunition line, both in high-performance M17 9mm +P ammunition.
As the maker of the U.S. military’s new sidearm, the M17, Sig bills the two new 124-grain loadings — one a jacketed hollow-point and the other a full-metal-jacket — as “military-grade ammunition” and the rounds are ballistically-matched, to allow the separate training and carry rounds to complement each other. The loads use copper jacketed bullets and clock a muzzle velocity of 1,198 feet-per-second, delivering 395 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle.
“The commercial release of the civilian variant of the U.S. Army’s M17 pistol, the P320-M17, has been a tremendous success,” said Brad Criner, senior director brand management and business development, Sig Sauer Ammunition. “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.”
So, if you’re looking to try out something different in your 9mm or if you are simply a fan of Sig Sauer, this may be the next set of ammunition for you to try. When you do, come back and let us know how you liked it by commenting below.
