2019 Editor’s Choice Award – SIG Sauer Elite Hunter Tipped Rifle Ammo

We are finding ourselves floored on a regular basis by the levels of consistency and precision we get with SIG Sauer’s entire ammunition line, and for 2019 hunters have a new reason to be excited with the introduction of the Elite Hunter Tipped Rifle ammunition. Designed with the highest levels of long-range accuracy and “drop it in its tracks” terminal performance in mind, lead/alloy, yellow-polymer-tipped, blackened-jacket bullets with an enhanced boat tail are optimized for superior flight characteristics. Housed in nickel-plated cases for easy chambering and extraction and increased corrosion resistance, the Elite Tipped Hunter is loaded with a proprietary powder and industry-leading primers to ensure dependable ignition and consistent velocities no matter how inclement the weather gets.

We took the opportunity to test the new Elite Hunter Tipped ammunition at the same time we were testing Weatherby’s new Mark V Accumark Pro (also in this issue) chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and the results were outstanding, turning in a best-of-test 0.42-inch 3-shot/100-yard group. Once again, we’re sold on SIG ammunition.

The Elite Tipped Hunter is currently offered in .243 Win. 90-gr.; 6mm Creedmoor 100-gr.; 6.5 Creedmoor 130-gr.; .260 Rem. 130-gr.; .270 Win. 140-gr.; .308 Win. 165-gr.; .30-06 Springfield 165-gr. and .300 Win. Mag. 180-gr. Contact SIG Sauer Ammunition; Tel.: (603) 610-3000; www.www.sigsauer.com
