SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to expand its SIG HT hunting line of premium-grade rifle ammunition with the addition of .308 Win. and .223 Rem. Featuring an all-copper bullet that delivers deep penetration and maximum terminal ballistic performance, SIG HT ammunition is supremely accurate and ideal for hunting numerous species of game.
The 150-grain .308 Win features a muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps and muzzle energy of 2,801 ft-lbs. This SIG HT .308 Win cartridge is excellent for mid-sized game such as deer, antelope, pigs and predators.
The 60-grain .223 Rem bullet has a muzzle velocity of 3,100 fps and muzzle energy of 1,280 ft-lbs, making it an effective, hard-hitting varmint and predator round.
“SIG HT ammunition is extremely effective in the field, and our initial SIG HT offering in supersonic 300BLK has been in high demand because of its outstanding performance,” said Dan Powers, President of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division. “Retailers and their customers are asking for additional calibers in this lead-free, all-copper hunting round, and we will continue to expand the line to meet even more hunters’ needs.”
SIG HT cartridges are made with premium nickel-plated shell cases, and flash-reduced propellant is used to minimize visible signature while shooting in low-light situations. Premium quality primers are also used to minimize variations in velocity.
The SIG HT ammunition is produced on state-of-the-art loading equipment with electromechanical monitoring for charge weight consistency and geometric conformity. All SIG SAUER Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured by SIG SAUER at its new ammunition manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas, to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles.
