Anyone has any experience with Sig Sauer Elite Performance Ammo?

Found a good deal on these.  Sig V-Crown Elite Performance 147gr HPs.  The picture showing the expanded slug shows a highly familiar shape no?  Might be worth experimenting.


It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    Really!  Hummm.  Those look like Gold Dot bullets, no?  Or am I confused?

    Been some time since I have shot any and it was mostly 10 mm; but, I thought accuracy and Performance was better than the other 10 mm I had.

    I mostly shot water jugs with more explosive results than the other ammo.

    the bullet is from Seirra; the gold Dot is from speer; they are different though simmilar

    I too have only shot 10MM, it was accurate compared to most out of a Glock 20

    The consensus seems to be above average accuracy from what I’ve researched.  Thanks for the input.

    I currently have the 115gr in the mags of my Ruger Max-9. Only compact 9mm I've shot that was significantly better with 115 vs 147. But in the whole,  the Sig ammo has been consistently accurate in most guns I've tried it in,  various weights and caliber

    After extensive testing, I now load my .45acp magazines with them.  They had absolutely no failures in my Kimber CDP Custom, my XD Tactical, and my XD subcompact. I wish now that I'd kept a few of them to show some pictures here.

    I currently have the 147 gr in my P365, and it shoots as accurate as I am able to.   However back before purchasing the gun, I remember reading that the 3.1 inch barrel was designed for 115gr

    I wonder if @Zee (or his shoe selling organization) has done any testing of his 147 ammo in a short barreled gun?

    Interesting to see many here using the ammo with good results. I initially wrote it off as a gimmick that Sig was attaching their name to. Maybe I'll try some out when I burn through my Federal HST.

    G19 is the shortest I’ve tested.

    The GD Gen 2 was only 26 fps slower out of the G19 than it was out of the G47. Not enough to make a difference.

    Any chance we can get you to run some through your 43 during one of your range trips?

    Here's one of the tests that lead to my response...
