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 and Lapua overseas for loaded ammunition.
