PROVEN RESULTS: ELITE PERFORMANCE AMMUNITION
I have found every SIG pistol I’ve used has been accurate. Therefore, when SIG Sauer introduced their line of Elite Performance Ammunition, I surmised that it would be accurate as well. I have not been disappointed.
For self-defense, the SIG V-Crown JHP is especially noteworthy. It scored especially well in testing against various mediums in FBI testing. Various factors contribute to the effectiveness, including a V-shaped jacket for controlled, uniform expansion; stacked hollow point bullet with additional cavity, cannelure halfway up the shank for maximum weight retention and terminal expansion; and low flash propellant. The latter is important for lessening an opponent’s aiming point in night engagements.
Elite V-Crown 9x19mm ammunition is offered in three JHP weights: 115 grain, 124 grain and 147 grain. Also offered are three FMJ Elite Performance 9x19mm loads: 115 grain, 124 grain and 147 grain. The availability of these three weights is very useful, as most combat autoloaders will have fixed sights. Getting elevation of the pistol on may be possible by switching front sight posts, but I also find that I can often find a bullet weight that shoots close to point of impact.
Based on my shooting tests with SIG Sauer Elite Performance 9x19mm ammo so far, it is very accurate, among the best ammo I’ve used. The 115-grain V-Crown JHP has proven especially good.
Right: An excellent complement to the MK25-D-RX is SIG Sauer’s excellent line of 9x19mm ammunition.
