6.5 mm Creedmoor LRP
130 Swift Scirocco II Bonded
This load was developed using our Savage model 12 target rifle. This rifle has a 26" 1:8 twist barrel and has proven to produce faster results than many other barrels. We started with Alpha large primer brass and seated CCI BR-2 match grade primers. We chose large primer pockets for our hunting loads to help ensure positive ignition in cold weather often associated with hunting. This load uses the temperature stable H4350. This is our most often recommended load for big game hunting with the Creedmoor. This bullet does it all. Swift Scirocco 130 grain is a superb big game bullet. To date, we have shot almost 60 animals in three years with this bullet. Animals either drop on the spot or stumble off a short distance. Typically less than 40 yards with a copious blood trail. The Swift Scirocco makes the most of the Creedmoor in most hunting situations short of the ultra long range stuff. As with most big game bullets, Swift recommends 1,800 fps impact velocity or more. At 5,000 feet elevation under normal hunting weather conditions, this round meets the velocity recommendations out past 800 yards. Reduce that 100 yards or so if you are closer to sea level. This bullet stabilizes well with any 8 twist barrel.
We recommend this bullet for all general purpose big game hunting for antelope, deer, elk, moose, black bear and anything in between for ranges out to roughly 800 yards if you have some elevation and 650-700 yards if you are closer to sea level. This bullet typically mushrooms well, penetrates deep and straight, breaks bones, and normally exits. If you like broken shoulders and exit holes, this is the bullet for you.
