New from SIG Sauer: Elite Hunter Tipped rifle ammunition

Description of  SIG Sauer: Elite Hunter Tipped bullet

A new premium rifle line in SIG Sauer's already ample ammunition offerings: the Elite Hunter Tipped range. According to the manufacturer, the new cartridges give “the serious sportsman unmatched long-range accuracy, combined with devastating on-target performance in the field”.

With eight loads, the Elite Hunter Tipped ammo is in fact designed for massive expansion and deep penetration, delivering “instant knockdown capability and maximum terminal performance at extended ranges”. A yellow-tipped, lead-alloy bullet with an enhanced boat tail design for superior flight characteristics over a wide range of velocities is the distinctive feature of this fresh ammo line. The exclusive design of the concentric, blackened jacket ensures reliable, controlled expansion of the bullet with maximum weight retention, while the translucent yellow tip increases the ballistic coefficient while improving terminal performance and aiding in consistent, reliable chambering. Cases are nickel-plated to aid in extraction while providing significant anti-corrosion qualities. Moreover, thanks to custom formulated and precision loaded powders, velocities are guaranteed consistent regardless of atmospheric conditions and primers are matched to proprietary powder blends to ensure dependable ignition.
