Anyone use Swift Scirrocco bullets? These things all have a huge BC and long ogive, seems like they approach defying gravity. Any comments on loading or shooting them? I may get some loaded ammo for the 7RM I bought to flatten out the traj some so its more like the awesome 7STW.

Can't help you on the swift bullets. Ive used noslers, hornady, speer, but no swifts or barnes.

The Swifts are in reality the ORIGINAL Accubond/Interbond polymer tipped bullet. They have a good hunting performance record but I've heard their accuracy is not as good as a Ballistic Tip or a Sierra Game King. However fractions of an inch don't matter to game animals. ;)

I don't think you'll be unhappy with them especially after you shoot something with them. I learned a long time ago paper performance and field performance DON'T go hand in hand.

BCs on Accubonds are fabulous as well. Quite a few have reported they don't like them for elk. I personally don't know.

Anyhow I wouldn't hesitate to hunt deer size and smaller game with ANY of the polymer tipped bullets today out of a 7mm Rem Mag.

My brother shoots them. He ABSOLUTELY will not hunt with anything else! I will be the first to admit-performance wise -they have been flawless. His bullets have "beutiful mushrooms" w/ plenty of retention found under the skin on the opposite side of all his harvested deer. He shoots a tikka in 243.
