Swift Scirocco II's

Does anyone have any load data on the Swift Scirocco II's? I'm trying to load the 165's with CFE223 in a .308 win. I've heard that because they have a thicker copper jacket than usual they reach higher pressures quicker. Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

Only ones ive loaded are the 150 7mms and ive shot them in two differnt 7rem mags and my stw and never noticed that they reached pressure problmes any sooner then any other 140.

I've got a box of the 150 grain 7mm for reloading for my 7mm STW so that's good to know.

Thanks!

I have used the 165's in a 300Wby and killed brown bear, black bear, elk and mule deer. Great bullet just wished they made them in heavier weights. No pressure problems in Wby or 30-06. Dot think you are going to run into issues with 308.

Re: Swift Scirocco II's

Thanks for the input guys. Finally got around to testing those loads...(47, 48, & 49gr. of CFE223/165gr. scirocco II's OAL 2.835) no pressure signs, but it looked like buckshot @ 200yds. Velocity between 2775-2919. Obviously my rifle didn't like something in that combination.

Re: Swift Scirocco II's

My research suggests that they are good hunting bullet and have high BC"S. My research also said they can be difficult to find what they liked for accuracy. It was suggested to stated about .020 of the lands. Try different seating depths. Ley us know if different depths shrink the groups. Bruce
