Swift Bullets: A-Frame and Scirocco II

I stopped by Swift Bullets to see the “A-Frame” and “Scirocco II” bullets. According to Brad Elder, his bad boy bullets hold their mass at a wide variety of bullet velocities. The image above: a series of Swift Bullets fired at varying velocities, steadily transforming from a sleek, aerodynamic shape into a big fat mushroom. Still, the bullets retained the vast majority of their mass. “Ask big game hunters, the guys who hunt in Africa,” Brad said, assuming I thought big game was endemic to St. Louis. “Almost all of them will tell you to use Swift Bullets.” And if they were holding their guns at the time I’d be inclined to listen.
