SIG Sauer has announced that it will be expanding its SIG HT line of hunting ammunition with the addition of .308 Win. The new offering features an all-copper bullet that's designed to deliver deep penetration and maximum terminal ballistic performance.

SIG reports that the 150-grain .308 Win. features a muzzle velocity of 2900 fps and a muzzle energy of 2801 ft-lbs. It's meant to be used on mid-sized game such as deer, antelope, hogs and predators.

"SIG HT ammunition is extremely effective in the field, and our initial SIG HT offering in supersonic 300BLK has been in high demand because of its outstanding performance," said Dan Powers, President of the SIG Sauer Ammunition Division. "Retailers and their customers are asking for additional calibers in this lead-free, all-copper hunting round, and we will continue to expand the line to meet even more hunters' needs."

SIG HT cartridges are made with nickel-plated shell cases. Flash-reduced propellant is used to minimize visible signature while shooting in low-light situations.
