Sig Performance Ammunition

I recently bought a few boxes of Sig Performance Ammunition at Cabelas on sale. It was 10mm 180 grain. The other day when I went to the range with my new Valor 10mm I thought what the heck I will give this stuff a try. Man my target looked like I used 00 buck instead of 10mm. I thought man I am not that bad of shot, and this is a new Dan Wesson. Something is wrong in Denmark. I quit shooting after this experience and thought maybe it is my blood pressure or something.
So, off to the range today to shoot a new Bruin.
I decided to give the Sig ammo another chance. Same thing happened. But this time I brought more ammo with me including some of my reloads. I was shooting at 20 yards. I went from a shotgun pattern down to a two inch group with my reloads. So I guess I am going to use this Sig stuff in my carbine where I have a longer barrel and just use it for plinking. Hard to believe Sig makes such crappy stuff. Yes I am just venting and passing this on as an FYI.

These are my reloads at 20 yards so I know they are good.

I have been playing with it.

In .45 acp as well as ten mil. .45cp out of my wife's Ed brown performs really well, with excellent accuracy. Additionally I get the same results with the 180 grain 10 mill ammo out of my colt Delta and S&W 1006. I bought a couple of boxes of their .38 super loads, but have yet to shoot and evaluate them.

Just goes to show how some decent factory stuff will actually work reasonably well in some guns, others, not so much. One thing is for sure, crappy, inconsistent, cheap ammo will not shoot well out of any gun. Some people just think it does.

The Sig Ammo shot like crap in both of my 10mm Dan Wessons. But the Dan Wessons both shot fantastic with other ammo. So much for the name Performance. I give it a "D".

I've got over 1000 of their .38s loads and they work very nicely for me. I wish they were loaded a little hotter but all other metrics are acceptable

Maybe I got a bad lot number, but then again I did get them at Cabelas.

Never mind as I see you have posted you preferred 10mm powder in a different thread. Looks like your hand loads are better than the sig stuff. Very cool.

As in post #3, “good” factory ammo won’t perform the same in all guns.
Some guns won’t run HST, doesn’t mean it’s crap.

So I use Sig Sauer Elite Performance Ammo almost exclusively. I use them in 9mm, 40, and 45... I have Glocks, Kimbers, and Springfield Armory weapons. I don't have any problems with them at all. As a matter of fact, I love the ammo, and recommend it to anyone.

The picture below is with my Glock 35 (.40 S&W) at 15 yards.

No offense, but in my opinion, 99% of handgun accuracy is the shooter and gun, not the ammo, especially factory ammo. Maybe my definition of acceptable accuracy is looser than others'. If all of the rounds in my magazine can be shot into a group the size of a fist at 10 yards with my iron sighted handguns, I'm good. And with an RMR, maybe a 2" diameter circle. If the group is larger than that, it's my fault. I'm not talking about slow fire either. One round per second is as slow as I go. But I'm retired and I do shoot a couple times a week.

Good reminder to bring up.
Sometimes we get into heated debates about who/what can load/shoot better. Ransom rests and sand bags aside, it’s all about the shooter and practice. With that said though......I’m taking crappy ammo and junk guns out of the equation. If my target looks like crap, so do I!

I've used the Sig V-Crown ammo in 9mm and .357Sig with good results. It's not my go to ammo, but it performed well in my experience with two different guns. I have not tried the .45acp or 10mm.

I always found the Sig 10mm to be good, decent ammo in my pistols, but no DWs.
