Swift Announces New Cartridges


In August of 2016, Swift made a major investment in the marketplace and introduced Swift High Grade Hunting Ammunition.

The original introduction consisted of 18 cartridges in both Scirocco and A-Frame. The second phase brought on 12 more, to include the new Break-Away solids.

In February, with the latest addition of the 200-grain A-Frame in .300 Win. Mag,, the line stands at 60 SKUS in 34 cartridges ranging from .223 Rem. through .500 Nitro.

Whether you reload or shoot already loaded ammunition, Swift bullets are available in either format. Plans for the future are to make all the popular cartridges available to hunters with the Scirocco, A-Frame and Break-Away bullets.

Available at Graf & Sons, Midway USA, Sportsman’s Warehouse, or visit www.SWIFTBULLETS.com for product availability
