The Scirocco II begins with its Signature Black Tip, which is precisely shaped to diminish frontal air resistance. The Scirocco II’s high 0.571 G1 ballistic coefficient is also the product of its sleek secant ogive nose profile, its rotationally stable long driving band, and its boat tail base which is also thick to avert bullet deformation. A bullet which loses so little momentum in flight retains over 1,200 ft lbs of energy at 500 yards!
The Scirocco II’s Signature Black Tip begins its second job starting on impact. That is when it slams into its underlying nose cavity to initiate rapid expansion. The bullet’s progressively tapered jacket keeps that expansion at a uniform rate and width. Its solid copper jacket is also bonded to its core to ensure that the Scirocco II remains intact enough to penetrate deeply.
This American-made hunting round’s bullet is designed to deliver its full terminal ballistics at velocities as low as 1,750 fps, thus placing its max effective range at 736 yards (at which distance it will retain 884 ft lbs of energy – still fine for whitetail with the right aim backing the bullet up). Federal’s expertly loaded premium brass case, Boxer primer and powder charge complete the Scirocco II!
