Remington Arms breathes new life into the Premier Scirocco Bonded rifle ammunition line, reintroducing the ammo into its centerfire lineup.

The Premier Scirocco Bonded utilizes Swift Scirocco Bonded bullets paired with “specially blended powders” and Kleanbore to deliver an elevated performance, according to Remington. Scirocco bullets offer a polymer tip shaped to create less drag. The pure copper jacket is tapered and heavy-based in addition to being bonded to the lead core resulting in a controlled expansion.

Remington said the round’s design is topped off with a secant ogive bullet profile matched to a boat tail base that presents shooters with a high ballistic coefficient with match grade accuracy.

“Premier Scirocco Bonded is some of the most versatile and reliable big-game ammunition offered today,” the ammo maker said in news release.

Remington offers its Premier Scirocco Bonded centerfire ammo in several calibers to include: .243 Win, .270 Win, 7mm Remington Mag, 7mm Rem Ultra Mag, 30-06 Springfield, .300 WSM, .300 Win Mag, .300 Rem Ultra Mag and .308 Win — all in various bullet weights with prices under $65.
