SIG Sauer recently announced the release of its newest ammunition product line, a high-performance M17 9mm +P. Moreover, billed as military-grade ammunition, the M17 9mm is available in 124-grain SIG Elite V-Crown Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) and Full Metal Jacket (JHP) training loads.
Firstly, SIG designed each load to perform in any 9mm +P rated pistol, including the SIG P320-M17. Also, the two loads complement each other, providing a welcome training-carry combo.
“The commercial release of the civilian variant of the U.S. Army’s M17 pistol, the P320-M17, has been a tremendous success. 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,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “The M17 V-Crown and FMJ loads are both ballistically-matched, making it easy for our customers to train with the ammunition they carry.”

Likewise, each load delivers a muzzle velocity of 1,198 fps and muzzle energy of 395 ft.-lbs. Additionally, the V-Crown ammunition features a stacked hollow point cavity, delivering exception on-target energy with maximum weight retention, according to SIG. Meanwhile, the FMJ training ammunition replicates V-Crown ballistics, providing a more seamless transition when transferring from practice to carry ammo. Also, the FMJ ammunition utilizes copper jacketed bullets for affordable performance, according to SIG.
Finally, SIG manufactures all Elite ammunition in the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas. Additionally, the company offers a full line of ammunition designed for defense, hunting, competition and training.
