Last year I had the opportunity to visit the brand-new Sig Sauer Ammunition factory in Arkansas. At the time, the folks there were already manufacturing millions of rounds of completed ammo. Also at that time, they were ramping up production capabilities to make their own brass cases in-house, not only for their branded ammunition, but to offer to reloaders as components. Here’s the latest news on the components front.
Newington, N.H. (February 27, 2019) – SIG SAUER, Inc. is now offering component cases in 270 Win and 30-06 Springfield for precision handloaders. These are the newest additions to the SIG rifle components line which include 223 Rem, 22-250 Rem, 243 Win, 270 Win, 30-06 Springfield, 300BLK, 300 Win Mag, 308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor. Currently, all SIG SAUER rifle component cases are unprimed and available in bags of 50.
“We entered the components business because we wanted a higher quality brass for our SIG Elite Ammunition and our customers who choose to handload,” said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. “SIG component brass offers exceptional concentricity at the mouth which improves accuracy. This level of quality has not gone unnoticed which is why SIG components have been so popular with dealers and consumers alike since we launched our brass line.”
SIG Elite Ammunition shell cases are engineered to exacting tolerances. Each brass case undergoes rigorous in-line and post production quality assurance testing to ensure a flawless casing. The geometric consistency of these premium brass cases ensures each primer is held tightly in its pocket. Flash holes are precise with no burrs and the superior metallurgical properties of the SIG SAUER cases enable repeated reloading. SIG Elite rifle shell cases are induction annealed for consistent bullet retention. All shellcases are 100% inspected. The result is unparalleled durability and dependability.
The SIG SAUER 270 Win and 30-06 Springfield component cases are now available for purchase at the sigsauer.com/store.
All SIG SAUER Elite Ammunition and Components are manufactured by SIG SAUER at its state-of-the-art ammunition manufacturing facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles. For more information, visit www.sigsauer.com/ammunition.
