I watched a recent Hickok 45 video and he was shooting some.

More than likely, they are having the ammo made for them, not actually opening an ammo plant. Not unlike Nosler, Wilson, etc does witht their custom line.

Colt isn't making ammo either yet their brand is on ammo. Just playing the branding/brand recognition game.

If SIG puts their name on it, it will meet SIG standards regardless of who makes it or where.

Sounds expensive. I can barely afford to shoot anymore as it is, doubt i'll be buying it from Sig, especially since its likely its just rebranded.

Unless they own and operate the plant it's not Sig ammo. I'm not saying it's not good ammo.

It could be made by someone else to Sigs specs.

Good deal on them here:

Interesting... This is a new one on me.

Anxious to see some testing, but I doubt I'll be dropping my HST's anytime soon.

For self defense ammunition I'll stick with with offerings of the proven such as HST or Gold Dots even if they are loading Gold Dots or copies there of in their offering. SJ 40

I don't think anyone is trying to change your preferred ammo. Just another option.

$14.50 for a box of 20? That's not as bad as I thought it would be. Still, I'd like to see 50 round boxes.


I'll stick with Gold Dots and HSTs.

So there will be 8 duds out of 20 rounds?

Seriously though, that expanded bullet kind of looks like a bonded PMC star fire.

They showed up today and after eyeballing them over they remind me of HST's.

Caliber Corner

I'm sending them out for Andrew to do gel and Shadow the pull-down tomorrow. We have rain forecast most of the remainder of the week. It may take a while until I can Chronograph them, but if things change I will sneak over. It is a very muddy place at the range and will need a good day to dry after the rain has stopped.

I'm quick at getting set up and rolling on the Chrony It was 18 MPH wind and 45 degrees with zero clouds prompting the diffusers this outing.

Sig-Sauer 124gr V-Crown
Springfield XD 4" 1174, 1224, 1202, 1178. Average = 1194.5 FPS/ 393 LBS
EAA Elite Limited 4.75" 1223, 1250, 1245, 1267. Average = 1246.5 FPS/ 428 LBS

It doesn't have the +P rating, but the results put it in the same grouping.

I just found the velocity rating of 1189 FPS. If that is 4" barrel my results are about spot-on!

It does look very much like HST. Why not just buy the real thing then, especially now that Federal is selling a consumer version of it.
