SIG Sauer expanded its ammunition lineup in 2018 to include components for handloading, offering brass cases for popular pistol and rifle cartridges. The reloading brass is made in the same production facility as the company's high-quality line of personal-defense and precision-target ammunition, ensuring that all the premium features found in SIG's off-the-shelf ammo are reflected in these component cases.
“Each brass case undergoes rigorous in-line and post production quality assurance testing to ensure a flawless casing,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “The result is unparalleled durability and dependability.”
Produced at the SIG ammo plant in Jacksonville, AR, the SIG Sauer Elite Performance Ammunition shell cases are designed to meet the precision tolerances demanded by today's handloaders. For example, the primer pocket in each cartridge case is perfectly consistent, ensuring that primers inserted into the pocket are retained securely. The flash holes on each case are also formed without the burrs found in lower-quality brass. Each rifle case is features induction-annealing on the case neck to provide consistent, dependable bullet retention.
