SIG SAUER introduces Varmint & Predator Elite Performance Ammunition in three of the most popular calibers hunters prefer.

This new V&P line of ammunition features copper-jacketed, yellow-tipped projectiles designed for explosive expansion and match-grade accuracy.

Available in 40-grain .223 Rem, 40-grain .22-250 Rem and 55-grain .243 Win cartridges,  Varmint & Predator rounds feature projectiles that are light for their caliber. This yields higher muzzle velocities and flatter trajectories across all practical hunting distances.

The .223 Rem load has a muzzle velocity of 3650 fps and muzzle energy of 1,183 ft-lbs.  The  .22-250 has a muzzle velocity of 3975 fps with muzzle energy of 1,403 ft-lbs, and the .243 Win has a muzzle velocity of 3,880 fps with muzzle energy of 1,838 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,” Fini said. “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 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, Ark., to the exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles.  For more information, visit
