Hunt Backcountry Podcast 229 | The Story of the SIG Cross Hybrid Hunting Rifle
The new Cross rifle from Sig Sauer is a hunting rifle like you haven't seen before. It is a combination of a bolt-action rifle with AR-styling and a chasis-style stock that is both foldable and incredibly adjustable. But there's more to the Cross than just modern looks. Along with the Cross rifle, Sig also launched a completely new cartridge called the 277 Fury. This new cartridge with a hybrid steel and brass case design allows for the short 16" barrel to send a 140g bullet at speeds just shy of 3,000fps.
Patrick Hanley from Sig Sauer joins us to discuss the story behind the Cross rifle, the new 277 Fury cartridge, and more.
