    swift scirocco bullets

    Been thinking about loading some 180 gr swift scirocco bullets for my 300 wsm, for this falls elk trip. My gun really likes the hornady interbonds but I cant seem to get ahold of them any more so I was thinking about the swifts. Was wondering if anyone has used the swifts and what kind of results did you get? Also got a bunch of barnes tipped triple shock 180 gr. loaded up the my gun really likes as well

    I'd say of all the so called bonded bullets the Swift are close to #1, they usually have the highest BC of any of the bonded core bullets. They have been a little more finicky for me to get to shoot good, but so were the Hornady's. I think you'd like the terminal performance if you've shot the inter bonds before.

    The swifts have done great for me. I started shooting them out of my 7 mag and they group great. I have had the opportunity to take a few elk with them and they have performed tremendously! I am a big fan for what it is worth. I am shooting 150 grain.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the feedback. Now I'm just not sure if I should go with the 180's or the 165's

    I shoot the 180's out of my 300rum and love how they perform on deer and elk. I would definitely recommend them.

    Ballistics charts favor the 180 grain bullets significantly. They retain much more energy in the 300 and point of impact difference is minimal at normal hunting ranges. Just need to make sure your gun likes them...
