Sig Churning out .300 Win Mag…for the Army
While standard small arms rounds in the U.S. military are 5.56 and 7.62 NATO, the Army and SOCOM units have fielded precision rifles chambered in .300 Win Mag for over a decade, noting that it allowed for shots at ranges past 1,300 meters. Current platforms chambered for the round include the M2010 ESR, the AICS/Remington Mk.13, and the new Mk 21 Precision Sniper Rifle (MSR).
And with that, Sig just won a $10 million contract to supply the rounds to the Army.
