Sig Sauer’s SIG HT hunting line is now available in .308 Win, the New Hampshire-based company has announced. Boasting an all-copper bullet that delivers deep penetration and maximum terminal ballistic performance, SIG HT ammo is a great choice in general for taking down various types of game on your hunt.

The 150gr 308 Win cartridge features a muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps and muzzle energy of 2,801 ft-lbs. According to the press release, it’ll get the job done in terms of mid-sized game such as deer, antelope, pigs and predators.
SIG HT cartridges, which consistently yield 1.8x diameter expansion, are made with premium nickel-plated shell cases, while flash-reduced propellant helps minimize visible signature when you’re shooting in low-light conditions. Meanwhile, premium quality primers are used to minimize velocity variations.
“SIG HT ammunition is extremely effective in the field, and our initial SIG HT offering in supersonic 300BLK has been in high demand because of its outstanding performance,” said Dan Powers, President of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division. “Retailers and their customers are asking for additional calibers in this lead-free, all-copper hunting round, and we will continue to expand the line to meet even more hunters’ needs.”
