Chambered in a range of the most popular hunting calibers and incorporating high ballistic coefficients to push the range envelope, Federal Premium's new Swift Scirocco II loads are here.
Offered in .243 Win, 6.5CM, .270 Win, .270 WSM, 7mm Rem Mag, .308 Win, .30-06, .300 Win Mag, and .300 WSM, the Swift Scirocco II centerfire rounds work their magic through a streamlined bullet design engineered to yield flat trajectories, while retaining more velocity and energy downrange. Using a proprietary polymer tip, Federal says the Scirocco II expands at "minimal velocities" yet still offers high weight retention at close range due to its tapered bonded copper jacket.
“We are happy to have partnered with Swift to load this fantastic long-range hunting bullet. Swift is known for bonded-core hunting bullets and is one of several Swift bullets that we load into our Federal Premium lineup,” said Federal’s Centerfire Rifle Product Manager Eric Miller. “The Swift Scirocco II produces excellent upsets at various distances and is an all-around, good choice for medium and big-game hunting.”
