I guess Swift jumped on the bandwagon and began making some REAL premium bullets. Their 1st attempt, in my opinion, was not that fruitful. I shot a couple of antelope with my 300 RUM and the 180 Scirocco at 3250 fps. Even at 350 yds velocity impact the bullets did not hold together that well. Forget about elk at 100 or less! Now they came out with the scirocco II and this bullet is much more stout (even though initiating of expansion velocities are at 1700 fps). Additionally it was redesigned for greater accuracy! We will see. However the 180 gr 30 cal bullet at 3300 fps impact looks great!!!!!

I'm assuming you're not talking about the Aframe since it is one of the best premies on the market. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
I think the Scirocco has been a hit or miss bullet on performance, kind of like the btip. I personally haven't had a problem with them at all but I've not dumped more than a handfull of game with them either.
I'm wondering if Swift will exchange some of my unopened boxes of their Scirocco for some of the new "advanced" ones.
I also heard all of the hype about that too but I never saw this problem. My bear, shot at ~ 8 yards took the 180 Scirocco through both shoulders and blew into the ground from a 30.06. Several deer taken, all pass throughs. Oh well, I'm sure it is as controversial as the Btip.
