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?
Odor maskers come and go. Being downwind never goes out of style.

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.
