I haven't used the Scirocco ll, but the original Sciroccos wouldn't group very well in the rifles I tried them in whereas the AB's did........Rich

Accubond
MY buddy just shot a large mullie at 740 yards with a 270WSM pushing a 140 gr accubond
Recovered the bullet it now weighs 120.5 gr which is 86% weight retention

Re: Accubonds vs Swift Scirocco II

ACCUBOND cost less its a proven bullet and it easy to load. Swift Scirocco is expensive and very finicky. If I was in a hurry I would pick ACCUBOND. Just my 2 cents.

If your rich and real anal go with the swift

I dont think either one would be a bad choice. I have heard the scirocco causes more fouling do to the jacket being pure copper. I am seeing more guys using the accubond over the scirocco. I dont think the accubond will dissapoint you at all.

Re: Accubonds vs Swift Scirocco II

Such a wide open question. What caliber? What rifle? How far you going to shoot?

Generally I think the Swift is a better hunting bullet. Some rifles do not like them. Most rifles seem to like the AB. In some cals the Swift has the higher bc offering and vise versa. I think both bullets are of good quality.

Don't know if I am helping or not.

Re: Accubonds vs Swift Scirocco II

I have never used the swift bullets but I killed 4 deer from 98 to 275 yards with the 130 gr Accubond from my 264 Win mag last season and they were dead before they hit the ground. I did recover one bullet. Bullet left the muzzle at an average of 3350 fps and stuck a buck at 111 yards on the edge of the left front shoulder as it faced me at a slight left shoulder angle. The bullet destroyed the shoulder made soup out of the vitals and I found it in the right ham when cutting up the meat. The bullet was a text book mushroom and weight was 87 grs. For a bullet to be going that fast, had to still be going around 3200 fps, and do what it did and still hold together. It has to be a good bullet. It is very accurate also.
