Sig Sauer Issues Product Warning and Ammo Recall Notice
According to Sig Sauer, portions of Lot No. JDAR0815 of 9mm, 115gr, Elite Ball, FMJ (SKU E9MMB1-50) may have powder charge variations. As a result, this could cause a bullet-in-bore obstruction. This is where the bullet remains in the barrel, causing an obstruction for subsequent shots.
If you fire a subsequent shot into a bore obstruction, it could cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable. Likewise, and more serious, it would subject the shooter and bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury. For this reason, the company asks that you immediately stop using the ammunition and return it for replacement.
