SIG SAUER introduces its new Match Elite pistol competition ammunition, available in 147-grain 9mm Luger.
This soft-shooting, low-recoil Match Elite load features coated nickel cases and fast, clean-burning powder for exceptional performance and shootability in fast-paced competitions. Velocities will range from approximately 860 to 900 fps, depending on the type of pistol used.
With a power factor between 126 and 132, these loads are legal for all USPSA competitions and the lower felt recoil allows competition shooters to stay on target, resulting in faster and more accurate shots.
“This is the most accurate competition load I have ever shot,” said Max Michel Jr., Captain of Team SIG. “The SIG SAUER Match Elite consistently delivers groupings of less than two inches at 25 yards versus four inches on average with other ammunition, making it the ideal choice for professional and everyday shooters who want to improve their performance.”
“SIG SAUER always strives to improve upon existing products and the new Match Elite pistol competition ammunition is another example of this,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “This load was developed by SIG ammunition engineers, working very closely with Max Michel and Lena Miculek, to be the ultimate pistol competition load. The reduced charge weight delivers lower felt recoil, giving shooters an edge from a speed and accuracy standpoint.”
SIG SAUER Match Elite ammunition is only available online at sigsauer.com/store for $24.50 per box of 50 rounds. Cases of 10 boxes also are available while supplies last.
All SIG SAUER Match Elite Ammunition is manufactured by SIG SAUER at its state-of-the-art ammunition manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Ark. to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles. For more information, visit www.sigsauer.com/ammunition.
