SIG SAUER's Varmint & Predator Elite Performance Ammunition

SIG SAUER, Inc. introduced its new line of Varmint & Predator (V&P) Elite Performance Ammunition. The V&P ammunition features copper-jacketed, yellow-tipped projectiles designed to expand on impact, with match-grade accuracy. The ammunition is available in 40gr 223 Rem, 40gr 22-250 Rem and 55gr 243 Win cartridges.

The 40gr 223 Rem load has a muzzle velocity of 3650 fps and muzzle energy of 1183 ft-lbs. The 40gr 22-250 has a muzzle velocity of 3975 fps with muzzle energy of 1403 ft-lbs, and the 55gr 243 Win has a muzzle velocity of 3880 fps with muzzle energy of 1838 ft-lbs.

"The new SIG V&P line of ammunition gives varmint and predator hunters access to exceptionally effective hunting rounds with match-grade accuracy," said Bud Fini, Executive Vice President of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division and Special Projects. "We use the same high-quality, single-base extruded powders in these Varmint & Predator cartridges that we do in our SIG Match Grade rounds. This provides consistent round-to-round muzzle velocities and insensitivity to temperature change, and hunters will especially appreciate the results these performance rounds bring them in the field."

SIG SAUER Varmint & Predator rounds are manufactured by SIG SAUER in Jacksonville, Arkansas, and are produced on equipment with electromechanical monitoring for charge weight consistency and geometric conformity.
