Scirocco Goes 6mm


Swift's Scirocco bonded core bullet has been well received by hunters because of its controlled expansion across a broad range of velocities. The aerodynamic Scirocco is computer designed to fully exploit the bullet's boattail shape for maximum velocity retention and wind deflection. The 6mm bullet weighs 90 grains and its thick jacket ensures 80 percent or greater weight retention as well as great penetration. Bullet expansion begins upon impact by the bullet's black plastic tip, which also serves to protect the bullet's nose from deformation in handling or within the magazine of the rifle. The new Swift bullet will be welcome to users of the .243 Winchester and especially users of the new .243 WSSM. Contact Swift Bullet Co., Dept. RS, P.O. Box 27, 201 Main, Quinter, KS 67752; (785) 754-3959. www.swiftbullets.com
