Welcome back to True Shot Academy! Today we are showcasing a well known firearms manufacturer but a lesser known ammo manufacturer, Sig Sauer. The entity known as Sig Sauer has described itself as a “complete systems provider” in recent years. This title is evident in their production of firearms, optics, suppressors, training, and even ammunition.
Currently, Sig Sauer’s ammunition plant produces a variety of loads for both commercial and official uses. Today, we here at True Shot Academy are going to give an overview of Sig Sauer and the ammunition they produce. Without further ado, let’s get into it.
Sig Sauer is ultimately a brand name which encompasses multiple companies in the firearms industry. The American branch of the company is often referred to as Sig Sauer USA, Sig Sauer INC, or generically Sig Sauer. The domestic branch is located in Newington, New Hampshire and currently supplies civilians, law enforcement, and military customers across the globe.
People commonly associate the company with pistols such as the P226 and M17 and rifles such as the MCX and Sig 550 series of rifles. The company has manufactured firearms which have been utilized across the globe and have since branched out into other facets of the industry such as optics and ammunition manufacturing.
Sig Sauer’s large-scale ammunition production began in 2014 at their initial location in Kentucky. The plant would be relocated to Jacksonville, Arkansas in 2016 with production beginning in 2017. The plant in Arkansas produces ammunition and performs quality control checks such as measuring and inspecting ammunition as well as test firing portions of batches to ensure function.
Recently in October, Sig Sauer announced plans to expand this facility and the number of employees working at the plant. This growth coincides with the company’s acquisition and work on multiple government and law enforcement contracts.
Sig Sauer produces a variety of ammunition for a multitude of needs. Whether you’re plinking, hunting, precision target shooting, or stocking up on defensive ammunition, Sig Sauer has you covered. Branding found on the box makes it clear what a given load’s intended use is, making it easy for a potential buyer to know what they are looking at.
Sig Sauer’s practice ammunition line encompasses both pistol and rifle calibers. Popular handgun calibers such as .380 ACP, 9mm Luger, .40 Smith & Wesson, and .45 ACP are included in this line just to name a few options.
As far as rifle calibers go, one will encounter calibers such as .300 Blackout and .308 Winchester with more obscure options such as .277 Fury also being available. The practice ammunition produced by Sig Sauer is purpose-built to match up with the ballistics of their comparable Sig V-Crown loadings.
Sig Sauer’s defensive ammunition offerings encompass popular handgun calibers such as 9mm Luger, 10mm Auto, and .357 Magnum just to name a few. These offerings will feature hollow point such as the Sig V-Crown and the Barnes TAC-XP projectiles.
The hollow point loadings are also generally available in multiple grain weights to suit multiple preferences. As mentioned above, there are often corresponding practice ammunition offerings designed to help an end user train with a loading that is identical to what they carry.
Sig Sauer’s hunting ammunition offerings will encompass popular rifle calibers such as .223 Remington, .243 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308 Winchester just to name a few. Specialized projectiles such as solid copper projectiles and Extreme Expansion Tips are available which are optimal for hunting usage.
Conventional options such as soft point projectiles are also available alongside a variety of polymer-tipped projectiles. Additionally, multiple calibers are often offered in various grain weights so that an end user can select a preferred grain.
Sig Sauer’s match grade ammunition offerings cover a variety of popular pistol and rifle calibers. Options range from 9mm Luger, 5.56x45m NATO, 6mm Creedmoor, .30-06 Springfield, and .300 Winchester Magnum to name a few.
Common projectiles in these loads will typically be found in either an open tip match (OTM) or hollow point form. One will also be able to browse different grain weights when considering Sig Sauer match grade ammunition, making it easy for an end user to find a load that best fits their preference and firearm.
At the end of the day, Sig Sauer’s ammunition plant produces a myriad of loadings that will serve you well. Whether you are going to be doing some hunting, long-range shooting, or general plinking, they’ve got you covered.
