Sig Sauer has expanded its Elite Performance Ammunition line with the introduction of two new 10mm options for 2015.

The new options include a 180gr 10mm Elite Performance V-Crown Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) and a 180gr Elite Performance Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) premium target load.

The 10mm Elite Performance V-Crown JHP is an extremely accurate load delivering consistent expansion. A distinct advantage of the SIG V-Crown is the toothed cannelure located halfway up the shank of the bullet. Its location more effectively locks the jacket and lead/alloy core, providing exceptional structural integrity in a jacketed bullet. This design ensures maximum weight retention and energy on impact.

The proprietary SIG V-Crown stacked hollow point bullet design, along with the V-shaped jacket skives, aids in providing controlled, uniform expansion.

DUCTA–BRIGHT 7A coated brass cases also provide enhanced lubricity, offering superior corrosion resistance, and more reliable feeding and extraction in semi-automatic pistols.

“The 10mm caliber with our proprietary 180-grain SIG V-Crown bullet is a great load for hunting mid-sized game and an ideal round for self-defense,”said Bud Fini, vice president of marketing for Sig Sauer. “And for target shooters, we now offer a 180gr 10mm Elite Performance FMJ round.”
