SIG SAUER Announces Match Elite Competition 9mm Ammunition

When SIG SAUER got in the ammunition game, they went for broke with a pretty comprehensive catalog. The only thing they were missing was match grade handgun ammunition. With their new addition of Match Elite Competition 9mm ammunition, that hole in their product line has been filled.

Designed for action pistol matches, the new 147-grain load has been tailored for fast stages with a reportedly low recoil impulse. The soft shooting load propels a bullet to approximately 860 to 900 fps depending on barrel length.

Worried about not making power factor? SIG says that the power factor should be between 126 and 132 making this ammo legal for USPSA competitions.

Newington, N.H. (July 10, 2018) – SIG SAUER is pleased to introduce Match Elite pistol competition ammunition. Available in 147gr 9mm Luger, the 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 in the SIG SAUER online store for $24.50 per box of 50 rounds. Cases of 10 boxes will also available.

All SIG SAUER Match Elite Ammunition is 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 sigsauer.com/ammunition.
