Re: Which .224 bullet?

Anyone have experience with the Swift Scirocco 75 gr on Game? Was hoping to give these a try.

If you can find them, the 80grn amaxes have a .473bc and from a 26" tube you should be able to push them 2850+ with CFE223 or Alliant Varminter.

Forgot to add, I am jamming the 80 gr. VLD's .012". Seems to be the sweet spot.

Thanks, I will remember that. The guy I bought the rifle off tells me it shots the 90 gr. Berger well.
