Try them with 45.2 grains of Varget loaded .015 off lands and report back to us.

The closest I can get to the lands is .050 @ an OAL of 2.835-2.839 and still fit in the mag. I'll try this length with varget this weekend and post results.

Re: Swift Scirocco II's

Varget seemed to shoot better than CFE223, but still not acceptable group size. 2 1/2" groups at 200 yds is the best I could get. This rifle is a Remington 5R with some work done to it and normally shoots 13/16" groups at this distance with 45.5g Varget and 168g Nosler ballistic tips.

I was trying to find a little tougher bullet, but I guess Swift Scirroco II's aren't for me. Thanks to everyone who replied to this thread.

Re: Swift Scirocco II's

Did you try changing your seating depth's? If so how large of a range did you try? Thanks Bruce

Re: Swift Scirocco II's

I did not try different seating depths. I pulled the bullet out as far as I could to still be able to fit in the magazine which puts me .050 off the lands. Varget loads loads were 45g. And 45.5g. Both shot about the same.

All the feedback I received seemed to advise me to put the bullet closer to the lands than I could actually get it, so I didn't think more of a jump would be beneficial.

Re: Swift Scirocco II's

I have some 7mm 150 grain loaded up for my 7mm STW.

The 7mm Swift Scirocco II 150 grain - 7mm STW reloading data is:

IMR 7828 - 78 grain & 79 grain - COL 3.675

H-1000 - 78 grain & 79 grain - COL 3.675

Both of my Sendero 7mm STWs are at the gunsmith and I'll post the results when I get them them back and go to the rifle range.
