    They're a pretty tough bullet, so impact velocity would have to be right up there ...

    I really really really wanted these to be my hunting bullet of choice in my 243, but I just could not get them to group. In the end I think that they were too long for my rifle. I landed up getting a real sweet load with some 85gr Partitions, so I was happy.

    The swifts are very nice bullets though ...

    I have heard that from everyone I have asked.........................the 85gr Partitioin is one I have not thought about ................

    I will be shooting a .243 Ackley...............what twist was your rifle?

    Mine is 1x9


    The swift teck said the same thing ................about grouping them.

    Darn.............Im like you I wanted the Scirooco to be my hunting bullet to

    I think that you will probably be fine with a 1 in 9 twist ... mine was 1 in 10.

    I'd give it a go if I was you ... I think you have a better than even chance of success and based on those odds, I would give it a crack.

    Good luck ... I'd be interested in how you go.
