    Scirocco 130gr bullets

    Has anybody used these in a 6.5x55 and has a starting point for reloading? I believe them to be critical in seating depth, but do they work well on Roe?

    used the same weight in .270 on red deer, mine were not that fussy for OAL

    Be aware they are a heavy jacketed bonded bullet with potential for much heavier game than a UK roe
    Not saying they won't work in the right place but suspect they may not expand as well as others more suited to light framed game

    I used these bullets early in my reloading career with my 260 Rem. I found them very difficult to tune. They appeared to have great accuracy potential, but were very expensive, even back then. I did chest shoot a roe buck with one.

    As Ed says above, I think there are many cheaper and better options.
