It will. I have experience with the Sciroccos and they are very good hunting bullets. Be patient with load development. I recommend you begin by seating this bullet at the lands.

Load 140 SST hornady in 6.5x55 Swede M94 2500-2600 fps. Shot 2 large 4pt muelies both in neck within 40 yards. Crushed spine with 1 in. exit hole other side. Some day I'll learn how to post the pics.

Good shooting

I'll second the 140 a-max. I'm at over 10 one shot kills from 75 to 609 yards.
