SIG SAUER® Introduces .38 Super +P Elite Performance Ammunition


Newington, NH (October 7, 2015) – SIG SAUER, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most reliable firearms, silencers, optics, ammunition, airguns, and accessories is pleased to introduce 125gr .38 Super +P Elite Performance Ammunition in V-Crown™ jacketed hollow point (JHP) and SIG FMJ full metal jacket loads.

With a muzzle velocity of 1230 feet per second, the 125gr .38 Super +P ammunition delivers exceptional accuracy and reliability. The SIG V-Crown load features a proprietary stacked hollow point bullet for reliable, uniform expansion and optimal terminal performance. DUCTA–BRIGHT 7A™ coated brass cases also provide enhanced lubricity, offering superior corrosion resistance, and more reliable feeding and extraction in semi-automatic pistols.

The SIG FMJ premium target loads feature solid brass cases and durable, copper-jacketed bullets that remain intact on impact. The precise, uniform profile of the SIG FMJ bullets results in maximum accuracy and consistency. Dependable primers and clean-burning powders are used for reduced barrel fouling with more reliable functioning.

“With the introduction of the .38 Super +P ammunition, we now offer Elite Performance Ammunition for all SIG SAUER pistols,” said Dan Powers, president of the SIG SAUER Ammunition Division. “SIG FMJ ammunition is the perfect combination of affordability and performance in a premium target round. It is designed to approximate the performance of the corresponding SIG V-Crown jacketed hollow point rounds, giving our customers the advantage of a seamless transition from target ammo to carry ammo.”

All Elite Performance Ammunition is manufactured in the United States by SIG SAUER to the same exacting standards as the company’s premium pistols and rifles. For more information, visit

  1. At 125 gr and 1250 fps, isn’t this actually “.38 Super -P”? Many other ordinary .38Sup loads beat it for fps & ME.

    .38 Super +P, of course, used to be called just “.38 Super”, and has always been essentially “.38 ACP+P”.

    It’s unfortunate that SAAMI, I presume for safety reasons, decided to change the designation of standard .38 Super to .38 Super+P, because now we’ll never really get a +P .38 Super, and it would be an interesting alternative round for handgun frames sized for the OAL of.45ACP.

    It’s not clear to me that the +P designation actually did that much for preventing the under-informed from using .38 Super in their .38ACP and 9mmLargo handguns. It mostly just screwed up further development of the round.

  2. That’s kind of fascinating because I’ve loved .38 super for years and I love the ergonomics of SIGs (although IMO the accuracy has suffered over the past several years) but it’s really hard to find a SIG in .38 super. Right now there is precisely one (1) SIG in .38 super on and the price is over $2k because it is a German version and appears relatively old.

    So, I am guessing that either SIG’s new Legion line will have something in .38 super (although that is not in the recent announcement) or they’re going to be announcing something even newer soon.

  3. Does Sig make any current .38 super models? If not…I’m guessing the question is…will they?
