Designed for massive expansion and deep penetration, SIG’s newest ammunition delivers instant knockdown capability and maximum terminal performance at extended ranges, according to SIG. The cartridges feature a yellow-tipped, lead-alloy bullet. It utilizes an enhanced boat tail design for superior flight characteristics over a wide range of velocities. The design of the concentric, blackened jacket ensures reliable, controlled expansion of the bullet with maximum weight retention. The translucent yellow tip increases the ballistic coefficient. It further improves terminal performance and aiding in consistent, reliable chambering, according to SIG.
“Our new Elite Hunter Tipped line of premium rifle ammunition is designed and engineered to be a devastating game load with exceptional long-range accuracy and performance,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “SIG Elite Hunter Tipped ammunition delivers superior downrange energy and massive expansion for a clean kill whether you are hunting whitetail, mule deer, antelope, elk, predators or a variety of other game species.”
