Default Swift Scirocco II 62 grain bonded for whitetail

Hello all, I have some Colt Defense (doubletap ammo) Swift Scirocco II 62 grain bonded ballistic tip ammo loaded to 5.56mm pressure, I was wondering if anyone has any experience using this bullet for hunting (white tail or otherwise).

I see lots of info online about their 75gr offering in .224", but very little on the 62 grain projectile. Not really any gel tests out there for this bullet either. I'm looking for actual first hand experience using this projectile.

Thanks for any help.

In my opinion any bullet under 80 grs is too light for big game. My native CO agrees with me which is why they will only allow rifles 24 caliber or gigger with an 80 gr bullet for big game. Not saying the smaller rounds won't work under perfect conditions but shots while hunting are rarely perfect and a heavier bullet works better.

That is exactly the sort of input I am not trying to solicit.

In my state .223 is perfectly legal to hunt with, and I have used that caliber successfully many times in the past.

I am -ONLY- interested in actual first hand experience using the bullet in question, as I indicated in my first post. I am totally uninterested in the typical "Too small for xyz game" or "I prefer xyz caliber" debates.

Thanks anyway for your response.

When I have used the 223 It was always the Winchester loaded 64 grain. most shots under a 100, most not any farther than about 75, they worked fine, I would love to try the newer 73 grain ELD. But don't hunt anymore
