I had one and just looked for it and can't find it? I can tell you that if you can make them shoot in your rifle, the terminal ballistics are as good as any! They expand readily and hold together well under high velocity. I'm not sure what the lower limit of expansion is, but I am guessing around 1800-2000? .......rich

Re: Scirocco ?

I have a couple, a 180 from a 300 rum in an elk (dont remember the exact range but i think around 380 yards), then a couple more the HARPERC sent me, i think one was a 180 grain 30 cal, i will see if i can find the card reader and will try to get some pics up along with specifics.

Great success with the 180gr sciroccos in my 300 rum.

One shot one kill with massive wound channels.
