Re: Swift Scirocco II
Just received this from Swift via email:
Scirocco II press release,
Swift Announces the “Next Generation……Scirocco II”
The Scirocco, announced in 1999, is one of the greatest innovations in hunting
bullets ever. Driven by determination and ingenuity, the folks at Swift created a product
with superior exterior ballistics and unparalleled terminal performance. Old-line bullet
companies rushed to follow Swift’s lead with attempts to duplicate the performance of
the original Scirocco.
Just as life is a process of continual improvement, the people at Swift
never accept the status quo, sign on to conventional wisdom or rest on their laurels. At
Swift, a desire to make the best possible bullet is the motivating force behind invention.
Now, Swift raises the bar even higher. The result is the “Next Generation……Scirocco II”. This new bullet retains the same sleek profile in and out. Load data remains exactly the same. Different is the overall performance with greater accuracy and dramatically advanced terminal expansion, shock and penetration. Nothing is as brutally tough with such a streamlined shape. Nothing out-performs a Scirocco II across an extreme range of velocities from 1700 to 3300 feet-per-second and more.
Time and experience pointed the way to dramatic advancements made possible with the latest technology, metallurgy and refined manufacturing process. The Scirocco II is better than anything out there, better than anything before. Touch and feel the difference, see the svelte finish and sharp lines. Witness the awesome advancement in performance.
I replied asking for more information such as what bullet tests have been done to come the original to the new bullet. Comparisons between other manufacturers bonded bullets. Whether they had addressed the fouling problem with better metalurgy. Whether they had addressed the so called "pancaking" expansion.
Anyway, the press release didn't do much for me...we will see what information we get on my other questions.
