The LGS posted an ad for this ammo:
Manufacturer Sig Sauer Ammo
Caliber 9mm Luger Ammo
Bullet Type Full Metal Jacket
Muzzle Velocity 985 fsp
Muzzle Energy 317 ft. lbs
Casing Brass Casing
Odd that it's not a menu item on the Sig site??
I've used other 147gr, seen the 150 gr subsonic but never used....but have never come across this heavy in 9mm.
Anyone have a review or comment on this flavor?

180 grains is a very heavy bullet for 9mm, the muzzle energy is low also. I'd say it's fine for range fodder, but most likely you may need adjustable sites with it as I don't think POA/POI will be the same as 124 grain.
Never knew about 180. I load 165 for my subsonic rounds.
Not minority enough!
Interesting. 180gr would be nice option for 38Super or 357sig too.
147gr@985fps=317 pds energy

Ive got some 158 grain 9mm specially made for supresser use.
A 9mm in MY Hand is better than a 45 at home.

The reason why you are not seeing it as a menu item on the Sig site is because Sig does not produce 9mm ammunition with a 180 gr bullet weight. The ad, by all accounts, appears to be incorrect.
Also, Sig ammunition is produced in Arkansas, not New Hampshire.
I did do a little research on heavy 9mm bullets, and did come across mention of 180 gr cast bullets on some older chat room sites. That must be one very long bullet. One would have take care with powder selection if reloading.
I'm guessing that it's a mis-print, and should be .40 S&W
That's what I thought as well.
