Newington, NH (March 1, 2018) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is now offering a 300 Win Mag round in its line of SIG HT™ premium-grade, copper hunting ammunition. This accurate hunting round features an all-copper bullet that delivers deep penetration and consistent 1.8x diameter expansion. The 165gr 300 Win Mag bullet has a muzzle velocity of 3,110 fps with muzzle energy of 3,543 ft-lbs, making it an excellent choice for medium-sized game such as deer.
“The 300 Win Mag is such a popular caliber with hunters, we wanted to add this round to our environmentally-friendly SIG HT line,” said Bud Fini, Executive Vice President of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division and Special Projects. “All SIG HT offerings feature our proprietary, high-performance all-copper bullet which is now available in 300BLK, 223 Rem, 308 Win and 300 Win Mag loadings with additional chamberings to be added in the months ahead.”
SIG HT cartridges are made with premium nickel-plated shell cases, and flash-reduced propellant is used to minimize visible signature while shooting in low-light situations. Premium quality primers are also used to minimize variations in velocity.
The SIG HT ammunition is 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, Arkansas to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles.
