Since they stood up their ammunition manufacturing facility a couple years back SIG SAUER has been on a roll. Originally intended to give SIG SAUER the ability to be a one stop shop for guns and ammo for military and government contracts, their ammo manufacturing capacity has given them the ability to provide inexpensive quality ammunition to the masses as well. Their latest addition to the store is a .300 Win Mag cartridge with a 190 grain Sierra MatchKing projectile they claim is “match grade.” It makes perfect sense, since the U.S. military (and just about everyone else) has standardized around .300 WM as their long range precision caliber of choice in recent years replacing the ancient .308 Winchester loading.
Naturally we’ll be asking for some samples to test out. Stay tuned. In the meantime, here’s a press release.
SIG SAUER, Inc. continues to expand its Match Grade Elite Performance Ammunition line for rifles with the addition of 300 Win Mag Open Tip Match (OTM) rounds. Featuring a 190gr Sierra MatchKing® bullet, this new 300 Win Mag load has a muzzle velocity of 2,850 fps and muzzle energy of 3,426 ft-lbs.
Engineered to excel in today’s precision rifles, SIG SAUER Match Grade Elite Performance Ammunition features a temperature-stable propellant that delivers consistent muzzle velocity in all weather conditions. Premium-quality primers ensure minimum velocity variations, and the shell case metallurgy is optimized in the SIG Match Grade OTM cartridge to yield consistent bullet retention round to round. All SIG SAUER rifle ammunition is precision loaded on state-of-the-art equipment that is 100% electromechanically monitored to ensure geometric conformity and charge weight consistency.
“The exceptional quality of our SIG SAUER Match Grade loads makes this line a top choice for professional, competition and recreational shooters alike,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division.
All Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured in the United States by SIG SAUER to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles.
