Sig Sauer expands its Elite Copper Hunting Ammunition series launching a new 80-grain all-copper bullet in the form of 6mm Creedmoor.
Offering a deeper penetration and 1.8x diameter expansion, the new 6mm Creedmoor brings accuracy to medium-sized game hunters, according to Sig Sauer. The round features muzzle velocity of 3,300 feet-per-second with muzzle energy measuring 1,935 foot-pounds.
The 6mm Creedmoor is the latest to join the Elite Copper Hunting series with the company already offering rifle shooters .223 Rem, .243 Win, .300 BLK, .308 Win, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Win Mag and 6.5 Creedmoor. Sig Sauer says the decision to expand the lineup comes at the behest of Creedmoor consumers.
“6mm Creedmoor ammunition is in high demand as is the 6.5 Creedmoor load,” said Brad Criner of Sig Sauer Ammunition. “Our customers have been asking for both and we are happy to now offer these two hot hunting cartridges in our Elite Copper Hunting line.”
Sig Sauer ammunition is manufactured at Sig’s facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas. The ammo is currently available and shipping now, priced at $37.95.
