Sig 380 Ammo

Seems like a reasonable price if you're inclined to purchase this brand:
Sig Sauer Elite Performance Pistol Ammunition E380B1, 380 ACP, Full Metal Jacket, 100 GR, 910 fps, 5 - Able Ammo

I bought almost 500 rounds of that ammo from a guy on a gun forum here in the Lou for my PPK....It shot well and wasn't bad to clean up after shooting...

You can get the same basic load .380 Auto, 100 gr RNFP new box of 50 for $4.00 cheaper ($14.48) and 50 fps faster (960 fps) from Freedom Munitions. Reloads are available for a little less.

I'll pick up a few boxes and see how it does. If it works great then will commit to a bulk purchase. This is the stuff that Kimber ran through my Micro Carry each time they had it in the shop, and they had no issues.

Out of stock every time I've checked.

I couldn't pass it up for $140 and the PPK had zero issues with it..

I've run 200 or so rounds of the Sig and found it to be In the top three of the 10ish brands I've tried. Far fewer hang ups in my Micro and a lot less residue then other brands.
Looked at the Freedom site several times and the .380 hasn't been available?
