    Default Swift Scirocco II

    Has anyone had some first hand experience with these bullets? They are factory loaded in Rem premier but I was looking for first hand with handloads. With a sectional density of .266 and ballistic coefficient of .515 in their 150 gr. 7mm bullet, it was too hard not to grab a box.

    Default 150gr swift scirocco

    I loaded some for my 7-08 & they are accurate. As far as bullet performance I have harvested a grizz ( squared 7'-2") @ 21 feet, I shot him in the neck & it all but severed his head off. I have also have killed some coyotes @ medium ranges (275yards & 380 yards) w/ range finder & it puts a nice exit wound about the size of a quarter. So i would say it expands nicely @ resonable ranges @ average velocities & still holds up to close quater shots. The exit wound on the grizz was probably 2 inch diameter. But I think that is due to the physics of momentium. The load I believe( I haven't loaded in awhile ) is 43.2 gr of Varget conied @ 2805 FPS @ 26 degrees F. Great BC so it actually shots flatter than most other 150's.

    I have a box of 6.5 130s Scirocco IIs and they were the worst shooting bullet I have ever shot out of a 6.5

    A quick question for you Ken. Do you think the poor shooting has anything to do with shooting an Italian named bullet through a German rifle in a Swedish cartridge by an American shooter? Maybe the components need a translator to know how to work as a team?

    I was pretty bummed by it (Scirrocco is Spanish though isnt it?) since the bullets look so cool

    Accubonds shot better

    The German made VW has a Scirocco in their line up but it comes from an Italian name.

    Your right, but to really dig deep, its etymology might be Arabic
