It shot very well out of my .270. I like Federal ammo in
general but have always shot the Remington core-lokt bullets
in my .270 up until this year when the store was out of them
The Federal fusion bullets shot and grouped better so I am
gonna stick with them.
My brother used 2 boxes in his .308. I normally load for him, but he bought a Remington 7600 right before deer season 4 years ago, so he tried the Fusions. He shot 4-5 deer out of the 2 boxes, performance was about the same as the Accubonds I use in my 06 and what I have loaded for him since- pass throughs, even on some raking shots and good expansion. He's not much of a group shooter, but had several 1-1.25" three shot groups when we sighted his rifle in. If I did not reload, I would use the Fusions for deer hunting.
Yeah I am shopping around for a .338 Federal load and they caught my eye. I wonder how they would work on bears(PA Bears)or should I spend the extra $25/box for Noslers??
I will use it for deer also and am sure they will work just fine.
Buy the Noslers. I love the fusions for deer size game but was hugely disappointed on thier performance on an Elk out west. Got the animal but 4 shots (my bad) hit "in " the shoulder instead of behind it, with a .308. The partions are bone crushers & would have dropped him a lot quicker
