I finally got some time today to test the scirocco's in the Tikka t3 .308win. Haven't measured yet but should be in the .3's. 44.6gr of varget, fed210 primer, rem brass. 100 yds 3 shot group. It's the lowest holes on the target.Image

Sciroccos are a great bullet; and you've developed a great load that honours them.

Scirocco is a great bullet. I just got back from an aoudad hunt in West Texas. Used 56 grains of RL16, trimmed Winchester case and 180 grain Scirocco with my trust '06. 316 yards and DRT.

Good to hear. I have them loaded in my .257wby mag as well. I couldn't seem to get them to shoot in my .243 win though.

Nice mulie congratulations, I bet he tastes great :) That recovered Scirocco looks like pretty much every one retrieved from game posted on this site, perfect performance. They seem to consistently work very well.

Yes I am very impressed with the scirocco's. Right through the chest went up and broke the spine found in the hide.

Very nice. Great buck and cool recovery. Another fan of the Scirocco here as well.

Tried scirocco in my 06 years ago, didn't shoot well for me, I might still have a partial box if anybody wants them.
In any event that is a dandy buck, looks to be well fed, congratulations.

I'm still getting my new house set up, painting the reloading/gun room as we speak. Hopefully installing the cabinets next week and organizing. If I find them I'll let you know.

Are they hard to find an accurate load with?

No problem buddy.

I don’t think they are hard at all. If you jump them right from the get go they come around fast. If you treat them like an unbonded cup and core they make you pull out your hair.

I never had a problem finding an accurate load. As Scotty noted, they (like most bonded core bullets) like a jump to the lands. Once I learned that peculiarity, all the trials I conducted were quickly concluded.

As I recall, as I watch the paint dry, I was loading them close to the lands. But I'm 62, only 30 years of hunting left, I'll stick with my 150 BT and 180 partition in the 06.

That has been my experience with bonded bullets as well.

I just did a test with the 150 grain Sciroccos. .01, .05 and.09 off the lands. The best group by far was .01 off the lands. This is the second time I have done this test and the results have been the same. I guess different rifles have their preferences for jump?
