I've shot a boatload of both. The only thing they ever did well in for me was .220 Swift when I was killing truck loads of Prairie dogs around Portales and Muleshoe.
In the 25-06 and 7mm mag, they just never gave me the accuracy and terminal ballistics ie first shot kills vs not blown to bits or straight punch throughs that ran a long way to bleed out and die that I wanted.
If I were still out in your country shooting the 25-06 for the game and varmints you'll be shooting I'd just be all over that Scirocco.
Of course back in those days the Scirocco wasn't around but I got really great results from the Nosler ballistic tips, and Hornady.
Bullet technology has improved by leaps and bounds in the last two decades and I just don't think your first two choices have kept up. I've also not had good experience with their advertised BC's being anywhere close to accurate.
