Used them on a big Blue Wildebeest, will never use them again.Has anyone used the swift Scirocco for eland sized game, how was the penetration?
Bullet pentrated about three inches and then took off at about 90 degrees initially hitting the crease between the sternum/shoulder then shooting up out of the shoulder.
It was getting very near to dark when I took the shot and if not for luck we might well have lost him to the night. Fortunatey it was so dry I could follow him in the low light as he was kicking up dust and was able to run him down after about a 400-500yds chase and finish him.
Scared the hell out of my PH/Buddy and the outfitter when I took off like that after him and they were about ready to stomp me if he didn't.
I'd had a couple of similar issues on much smaller game with the Siroccos in the past but dismissed them as flukes. I've never used them on another game animal since nor will I ever again use them period.
They fly great, easy to load, but unreliable terminal performance like that will cost you game and could get you killed.
