Bullet Points: Top 5 Rounds From Sig Sauer Ammunition

    Sig Sauer Ammunition

    Ok, so there are more than just five items on my list; I couldn’t decide which of the SIG Sauer ammunition should take the top five slots. But since SIG has been nice enough to supply me with ammo for decibel testing for TFB’s Silencer Saturday, I thought it would be a good idea to return the favor and outline some of their best rounds (and give you a direct link to buy your own). Yes, my list is heavy on the 9mm and 300BLK flavors of ammunition, but if a different cartridge tickles your fancy, chances are that SIG has you covered with multiple bullet weights and types to choose from.

    Bullet Points: Top 5 Rounds From Sig Sauer Ammunition

    From the V-Crown in 365, M17 and standard defensive varieties, to FMJ practice rounds to their Match-grade OTM loadings, I have been impressed with all of the ammo options from Sig Sauer. And get this, you don’t need a SIG P365 to shoot their 365 ammunition, nor do you need to own a P320 to shoot their M17 ammunition. Shocking, I know.

    After SIG’s “top 5” rounds, I laid out a couple of coming attractions hitting the market. That solid copper supersonic 300BLK round looks mean.

    And at the risk of spoiling the fun, our own James Reeves From TFBTV has been doing some extensive testing with his SIG P365 with SIG ammo. So stay tuned to TFBTV.
