Back in 1982, Swift started out making handgun bullets in Quinter, Kansas, using C&H dies in a loading press. The rifle bullets were made from 22 rimfire hulls with Corbin tools. About two years later, Swift began production on a new rifle bullet for large game and invested in more equipment. Further testing and bullet refinement led to what was to become known as the A-Frame®, with a copper-jacketed and bonded core design. The A-Frame® bullet became a commercial offering in 1984, when Swift placed a small ad in Shotgun News to begin selling bullets through the mail. As sales grew, a punch press was purchased and production was born.
Ten years later, 1994, retired Pepsi Cola Company executive Bill Hober joined forces to form what is the Swift™ Bullet Company of today. Since that time, there has been a heavy investment in advertising, capital expenditures, research and development, and human resources. This has all led to the development and successful introduction of the Scirocco® bullet line with the Signature Black Tip™ and now the NEXT GENERATION Scirocco II®, as well as additional A-Frame offerings.
Today A-Frame and Scirocco II® bullets are sold around the world to reloaders, to Remington in the U.S. and Canada, and to Norma overseas for loaded ammunition.
