    I picked up a couple of boxes of 124 gr JHP today on sale. It is a good deal if you compare with HST or Gold Dots. I was thinking of buying some more, but was wondering if anyone has used them before? My main concern is reliability, of course. I never even knew Sig made ammo, lol.

    I shot their 124 JHP Elite (I think it was called) out of my Nano today. My Nano is very finicky on ammo. I shot 2 boxes and all cycled without any issues at all. Out of all my guns, the Nano is the most challenging in finding reliable ammo to work in it.

    Thanks, I believe that is what I bought today. Sounds promising, I think I may buy a few more boxes as long as I can find it at a good deal.

    The few gel tests I've seen with it haven't been very impressive but I'm sure it's reliable ammo.

    I find it hard to believe it is less expensive than HST or Gold Dots, at least when you're talking 50 round boxes, although you may have to order online. A 50 rounder of HST can be had for $21 at sgammo.com (plus shipping of course).

    Yea, I should have mentioned that while I shot a couple of boxes in my Nano today, my carry ammo for that gun is Hornady American Gunner 124 gr +P XTP. That ammo has been 100% in my Nano and it has good gel test results.

    Actually I rewatched that test by tnoutdoors9 and it did better than I thought I remembered it did. Maybe it was some other tests that were less impressive.

    All I've shot was their 10mm FMJ ammo. It has become my favorite off-the-shelf 10mm round and just about the best price too, for 10mm. I'd like to try some of their other offerings.

    I have several boxes to try out next range visit in my wife's G43. I like it in my G27 converted to 357 Sig.
