Re: .243 90gr Scirocco

although in a differen tcaliber, I have shot the 150 g. 7 mm scirocco and terminal performance is great, perfect mushrooming and good penetration ( used in animals up to 300-400 lbs.)

problems with accuracy may be due to the bullet being rather long and requiring a faster twist/higher muzzle velocity.
