    I've been having pure hell finding a load for my 308 using Scirocco 2s. I sent Swift an email, didn't really expect anything except some reload data-which I already have. Nope, I got a personal phone call from the man himself, and I thought great customer service was a thing of the past. He didn't really tell me any magic tricks. He did say that Sciroccos require some "jump" because of the heavy jackets. He also said when working up loads have your bore very clean. In other words, don't foul your bore with anything other than Sciroccos, for whatever reason. I don't normally clean my rifle that good. It shoots more consistently just using a boar snake every 20 or so rounds. 
    Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool that he called and spent a few minutes trying to help.

I only use SSII's in one rifle, my 6.5 rem mag, and got the best accuracy at .060" off.  Also got the best standard deviation and extreme spread.  The load has been very consistant and does exactly what I want when it hits something downrange

The swift scricco II and the bergers are preferred by my nicer rifles... Lapua comes in a close 3rd. They make a heavy hitting bullet maybe density is a little higher.

    I was loading these for an Armalite AR10 so I was crimping them. A guy at my local range claims that SS2s hate being crimped. Gonna try a few uncrimped and see if that tightens my groups up.

Not crimping these made a huge difference. Went from shotgun patterns to cloverleafs. I chambered and ejected a few of these and the COAL didn't change any, so I think I'm set. These bullets DO hate being crimped.
