Scirocco ii or somthing else.

Thinking about getting Scirocco ii 130 grain bullets to load for my 260 REM. The barrell has a 1/8 twist. I like that these have a tip in them. I may be weird but don't like bullets with the lead exposed on tip. Mine always seem to get dinged and dented on tip. Any other suggestion of a great deer bullet would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

Re: Scirocco ii or somthing else.

Try Hornady SST bullets. They have a ballistic tip as well and are alot cheaper than accubonds. I love 'em! Awesome on deer.

Re: Scirocco ii or somthing else.

Lol you sound like me...no cannalure and no lead tips...for the same reasons..i know it typically doesnt effect much but the mental effect is huge haha...

Ive been using accubonds....so far i love em...

If i didnt bear hunt id run ballistic tips most likely...

Re: Scirocco ii or somthing else.

Did you ever try any 120 grains in your gun? Just looking at the 1 in 8 twist factor.

Re: Scirocco ii or somthing else.

Thought a 1/9 twist would be for 120. 1/8 for 130 and up. I could be completely wrong. I am gonna give.the 130 scirocco's and accubinds a try. Thanks for input

1/8 will be fine for 120 or 130. That 130 Scirocco will buck the wind.

Re: Scirocco ii or somthing else.

I tried them last year in my 25x284 shot very well and recoverd a bullet shot in to a jug of water at 500 yards. It was a 100 grain bullet and it weighed around 90 + grains so if your in to retention it did the job. However, i like fragmentation and switched back to my regular sierra. Got out to Colorado and hard a hard time sighting the gun in wasent to concerned due to it was only a back up gun. When i got home i went to the range and i thought the barrel went south. Decided to clean and it was the worst copper fouled i have ever seen. Gun came back to life, so make sure you clean well they will foul a barrel quick.

Re: Scirocco ii or somthing else.

Can't speak for that bullet but can speak for the Barnes TSX of the time tested Nosler Partition..their record is clear, they work!!!! I can't imagine any bullet working any better that those two..they have stood the test of time and their records are proven..they kill and smash and almost always exit leaving lots of blood, but most animals don't take too many steps after being hit with either. Also most are loaded by manufacturers these days if you don't handload.
