Swift Scirocco II

I stumbled across a forgotten box of Swift Scirocco II bullets for my .30-06. They are 150 grains. Anyone have experience loading this bullet who'd be willing to pass along recommended loads for it?

Re: Swift Scirocco II

I use this bullet in my 300 RUM. At first I was shooting 102 grains of Retumbo at 3550 fps. It shot very well, but since it was only a BDL it was very light and the recoil was a little much. I slowed it down to 96 grains and am now shooting at 3300 still shooting MOA and its a nice round for that gun.
For fun I ended up loading up some rounds for my brother's '06. We loaded up 53 grains of Hodgdon 380 and it shoots MOA at 100 yards. Haven't shot it through a choreograph yet but it's on the to do list.
