Haven't even seen it other than video's. To soon to pass any judgement good or bad. Sounded like loaded ammo is all that will be available to start with. Doubt it will be cheap either.

The military round will be hybrid brass with a steel case head running 80k PSI ( 135gr @ 3000 FPS- 16" barrel). Sig will release (future) the round with a reduced pressure with regular brass to the public...TBD

That round is going to have some recoil. A full auto pounding in a firefight might be a bit much.

Ammo is out and available to the public. 135 gr. fmj.$29.99 box. 150 gr. ballistic tip $70.00 box. A bit much for hunting ammo. Rifles ( sig cross) are scarce chambered in .277 sig. Wait and see?

$70 a box is on par for some of the premium hunting ammo for magnum calibers.

Theory has it this is one way to make military arms unavailable to civilians, by making the ammo for it scarce and or expensive and unavailable. Civilian version of the ammo sure, but not the good stuff that makes the rifle good.

CA knows all about putting the squeeze on ammo. No mail orders or private transactions without FFL, extra taxes and mandatory background checks yes for ammo, lead free regulations, quantity restrictions, etc.

That's a bummer for Cal. but they voted them in. The 277 looks good on paper to get that velocity out of a 16" bbl. I have the cross in 308 and it shoots well and is lightweight good for humping the mtns. I have seen exactly one Sig cross in .277 for sale in 2 years,doesn't look like they are racing to get them out to the public. Now that they have the military contract we'll have to wait and see.
