Scirocco Accuracy

Waiting on Swift's new 6.5mm Scirocco to use as a long range hunter in my 6.5-284 and was wondering how any of you have found their accuracy in other calibers? How about their terminal performance?

DBS I have used them in 7mm RUM with great sucess on paper. Only game shot was a large 6 pt bull at 556 yards. The Bullet hit dead center shoulder and exited through the off side shoulder. Needless to say he took his last step. I hadn't heard they were coming with a 6.5mm. My new 6.5 284 should be done in a couple weeks. When are the bullets due out?

I just used them for the first time in my new .300 RUM this weekend. The range was limited to only 100yds. I key-holed every group of three I shot. I'll continue to use them.

Budman, I spoke with Swift again this morning, the 6.5 Scirocco at 130 grains will be available around the end of July.

I've used the 7mm 150gr and they shot fine, but not as good as a sierra.

shoot extremely well but you must sort by
weight,every lot I tried varied 3 to 5gr.
as far as performance 3 one shot kill's

I have great experience with 210grs. scirrocco's in my 338 RUM.
They group (3 shots) under 1/2moa in 990m/s.
They also hold together nicely. I've killed a roedeer and a beaver with the load.
On moose i use 225grs A-frame's.
