ANOKA, Minnesota - November 24, 2020 - Federal Premium releases its new Swift Scirocco II centerfire hunting loads lineup. The new bullet promises to push effective range to new extremes while delivering a more lethal blow on impact. Shipments of this product have been arriving at dealers nationwide.

“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.”

The Swift Scirocco II bullet’s streamlined design and high ballistic coefficient produce flat trajectories, while retaining more velocity and energy downrange. Aided by its proprietary polymer tip, the Scirocco II expands at minimal velocities yet offers high weight retention at close range thanks to its bonded copper jacket.

Features & Benefits
• Proprietary polymer tip improves ballistics and initiates low-velocity expansion
• Advanced secant ogive maximizes ballistic coefficient
• Tapered copper jacket bonded to lead core
• High weight retention at close range
• Expands reliably at low velocity for long-range terminal effect
