SIG SAUER, Inc. is manufacturing premium pistol and rifle ammunition components for precision handloaders at its ammunition facility in Jacksonville, Arkansas. Elite Performance Ammunition shell cases are engineered to exacting tolerances and available for multiple pistol calibers (primed or unprimed) and rifle calibers (unprimed). The geometric consistency of these premium brass cases ensures each primer is held tightly in its pocket. Flash holes are precise with no burrs and the superior metallurgical properties of the SIG SAUER cases enable repeated reloading. All Elite Performance rifle shell cases are induction annealed for consistent bullet retention.
"Each brass case undergoes rigorous in-line and post production quality assurance testing to ensure a flawless casing," said Brad Criner, Senior Director, Brand Management and Business Development, SIG SAUER Ammunition. "The result is unparalleled durability and dependability."
