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 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.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
