    They ran them last week. Have some on the way for shooting tests. Believe they are 225 grainers. Will shoot them with the new Nosler Accubonds in .338 - should be interesting.

    Ian, Some people have had trouble getting the Scirocco to group.
    I have no trouble with grouping with my 300RUM...matter a fact, seems to really like 'em...especially w/ RL 25 and IMR 7828.
    I have shot the 150 and 180gr. bullets.
    .....sakofan...look forward to hearing about your tests...

    I have been waiting for these .338 bullets for a few years now, same goes for the 6mm, my two favorite calibres...for now. They kept stalling it for some reason, and now the Accubond is out with a very high BC I might add. What to do. I know that Iwill definitely use the swifts in my 6mm's, but I may just use the accubonds in my .338 Win and be done with it. That 225 grainer at .580 or whatever is hard to pass up and I have always had great luck getting the ballistic tips to shoot well in my rifles, so I anxiously await Ian's review. If they shoot, I may switch to the 225's exclusively. Right now, three 250 gamekings can be covered by a nickel in that rifle and they are loaded HOT! If the 225's will shoot like that, that rifle might turn into a longranger yet! I wonder how fast they'll go out of 24" tube?
