From SIG SAUER . . .

Sig Sauer has determined that portions of Lot No. JDAR0815 of SIG SAUER 9MM, 115gr, Elite Ball, FMJ (SKU E9MMB1-50), may have powder charge variations that could result in a bullet remaining in the barrel (i.e., a bullet-in-bore obstruction). Firing a subsequent bullet into a bore obstruction could cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable and subjecting the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury.

Ammunition from this lot should be removed from use immediately and segregated from other ammunition until it can be returned to SIG SAUER.


The lot number can be found on the inside flap of the individual boxes of ammunition. Examples:


If you possess ammunition from this lot number or have questions concerning this warning, please register for the recall process at and instructions for returning your product will be provided or call Sig Sauer Customer Service at 603-610-3000 (Option 1).

Sig Sauer will provide replacement product and will cover the cost of returning the affected product.

For additional information please refer to the FAQs.

  1. SIG seems to have more than their share of recalls. I use VCrown 124 & 115 Gr as defense ammo. Never a problem. Never used ball. Not cheap enough…

  2. I worked in heavy industry many, many years and the worst time to buy anything is during a time of scarcity because of panic buying of anything. Capitalvania throws out all the usual quality control stops and pushes its product of whatever it might be right out the door to maximize profits for the blind greed of the stock holders and obscene salaries of the criminal C.E.O’s. Naturally none of the profit is shared with the worker troglodyte slaves.

    The worst time to buy ammo or a firearm is during times of extreme buying resulting in scarcity so this does not surprise me when we see recalls of both.

    I might say that you cannot always believe the propaganda on the printed box either. Years ago I tested Remington, Winchester and Federal .220 Swift ammo and found that they lied between their teeth about the velocity printed on the box as none of them even approached the high advertised velocities. They deliberately underloaded them for the following reasons, less powder meant more profit, and it meant that the lower velocity gave much higher accuracy in that caliber which kept the ignorant customers ecstatically happy because back in those halcyon days few people had chronographs to “catch them in the act”.

    A similar story involves the 40 S&W cartridge. Quite a few years ago and after the magazine Combat Handguns reported 3 modern made brand new handguns, a Ruger, a High Power and a Glock all blew up with the factory made 180 grain hot loads the ammo factories quietly scaled back the velocity to leave enough air space in the cartridge in case of bullet setback. Naturally the article was pushed to the back of the magazine in one of their monthly columns.

    • Actually, it was not some form Capitalist conspiracy. When the .220 Swift was wildcatted the load development was slow and sure, and the wildcatters were well experienced and aware of the dangers of creating “hot” loads. Once the cartridge was released to the public some safety had to be in-built to protect the less than knowledgeable shooters wanting “The Next Big Thing”. Not knowing what the suitably of the action and barrel that had been re-chambered by the early adopters the cartridge companies reduced the load so that even borderline rifles would not kaboom. There were some pretty iffy surplus Mausers being re-worked. This path was blazed by the ubiquitous .30-30 which was developed in the era before modern smokeless powder. The .30-30 was arguably the first cartridge to be converted to smokeless powder. The cartridge manufacturers were well aware of the dangers of people using a smokeless powder in a firearm/cartridge not designed for the higher pressure smokeless loadings. So, the cartridges were manufactured using a load that would mimic the non-smokeless loading. It is a guaranteed warning that if you want to shoot an “heirloom” firearm that you should fire cartridges designed to mimic that era’s loadings for that firearm.

    • True Capitalvanians would not bother with a recall. Caveat Emptor.

      Velocities on boxes for rifle cartridges are typically from 30″ test barrels. Not 22-24″ barrels in common use. But some manufacturers do put realistic velocities on boxes today. Otherwise buy a chrony and verify for yourself.

    • Well dacian I have to say that you’re dead on the money with this one. If there’s anything those Communists have been able to show capitalist it’s the true meaning of quality control. The Soviet Union was well known for their quality control and pretty much any command and control economy has the exact same quality control as the old Soviet union.

  3. No worries Soldier Systems Daily will push put an article that demonstrates that this is no big deal to stay in SIGs good graces to maintain that access…..🤣🤣

  4. I admire the pride you have in your writing. You stand out from the great majority of other authors that push worse content because of this. I value you taking the time to discuss this since I wholeheartedly concur with you and would want to learn more.
