Sig Sauer expands its lineup of Elite Performance ammo even further, introducing .223 Rem and .308 Win full metal jacket rounds into the ammo series.
Designed for training, the new rounds aim to give range goers practice ammo that is both affordable and high quality.
“We have been inundated with requests for ball ammunition in these popular rifle calibers,” Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, said in a press release. “This new Sig FMJ rifle ammunition fills a need for those who want to practice their shooting without paying match-grade prices for competition-level performance.”
