- Q & A
This round’s bullet is no ordinary soft point. Its copper jacket is electrochemically bonded to its pressure-formed lead core. That poses two huge advantages: The jacket is exceedingly concentric to promote accurate flight, and because it is molecularly fused to its core the bullet retains all the weight it needs to punch deeply through the quarry’s body.
The Fusion soft point’s jacket also features several symmetrically arranged skives, which pre-weaken it to confirm reliable terminal expansion. The bullet reliably expands at velocities as low as 1,900 fps, which means the 0.414 G1 ballistic coefficient bullet remains fully effective at ranges up to 457 yards.
This ammo’s high-tech soft points are seated in premium reloadable brass cases, with meticulously matched Boxer primers and propellant charges to ensure consistent recoil and ballistic performance. Made in Minnesota, which is certain to win a Super Bowl sometime before the sun explodes.
Excellent Hunting Ammoon 9/24/2014
I've tried the latest and greatest new "bullet technologies" over the years and always wound up going back to my own reloads with Sierra BT Soft Points. Last year, however, I didn't have the reloader set up so I bought a box of Federal 150-grain Fusion in .308 to run through the paces. It proved to be quite consistent in velocity and extremely accurate in my rifle, producing one 2-inch group at 300 meters.
I was impressed enough to buy some more Fusion ammo for hunting. I shot an antelope buck at a lased 298 meters, a whitetail buck at around 250 meters, and a whitetail doe inside of 150. Even on the longer shots, I never recovered a bullet, but it was obvious that the Fusion bullet and jacket held together and retained its mass, each leaving a small entry wound and a large exit wound after having passed through the vitals. On the antelope, the bullet clipped the shoulder blade and went through a rib going in but still exited in one piece and had obviously expanded well. He took two shaky steps and went down hard. Both deer pretty much hit the ground right where they stood. In every case, a single shot behind the front shoulder did the job.
I'll be hunting with Fusion again this season.
