Sig Sauer Ammo question



I just picked up a new Ruger LCR in .38 spl plus P at my LGS. I like these guys and want to support them. When I got the gun I got a box of self defense rounds and the Sig Sauer FMJ ammo you see in the picture. Neither is plus P, btw as far as I know.

My question is about the Sig Sauer ammo. I've never shot any of their stuff. In my 1911 .45 and my XDs 9 I generally plink with WWB. How does the sig compare with the WWB as far as value and reliability?

I realize there should not be any feed problems in a revolver. I am mostly asking about comparative quality and my continuing to support these guys. I know nothing about Sig ammo. Thanks

The only Sig ammo experience I have is the Sig Vcrown 380 vs the WWB 380 JHP.

The sig ammo was much snappier and had noticeably more recoil

My local range is also the regional LE dealer for Sig so the Sig ammo has become the range ammo. Previously it was PMC or AE. I can't say that I've noticed any difference in recoil or accuracy but two things that I have noticed are the Sig ammo looks better and appears to burn more completely. The former is based on just appearance coming out of the box. The later is based on reloading.

Thanks guys.

It sounds like i can safely accumulate a few boxes while supporting my LGS. I may buy one box at a time so I can have an excuse to drop in more often.

Only speak to 10mm. The JHP load uses a Sierra bullet developed for that ammunition. Is very accurate in one of my guns. Have a buddy that works there so I know only about that one bullet used by Sig..
