Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not expand For many years I have shot Winchester Power-Point 150 grain in my Remington 270 rifle. 130 grain is typical for this caliber rifle so I thought I would switch this year. Federal has a good reputation so I tried the Fusion ammo. It group well when I sited at the range. I shot a buck through the front shoulder a few weeks ago. The entrance wound and the exit would were the exact same size which is about the diameter of a wooden pencil. I had zero blood from either wound. Fortunately, the buck only went about 15 yards from where I shot him. The only blood was from his mouth. I shot a second buck this past weekend. Same thing on the wound size and blood. He jumped a ditch after I shot him. I had zero blood on the side of the ditch where I shot him so I began to second guess if I had hit him. Convinced that I hit him I decided to cross the ditch since I ranged him and knew about where he crossed. Once I got to the other side he was about 10 yards over and again no blood. This ammo does not expand and does not leave a blood trail for tracking. I am changing back to Winchester Power-Point 150 grain since it worked for me for several years even though this is not the typical grain for this rifle for deer hunting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and accurate. Took a Cous white tail down with one shot from 280 yards last fall. Looking forward to this fall with the same ammo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Performance: Ballistic and Terminal Fusion exceeds my expectations from factory ammo. It groups under MOA in my Weatherby, and performs well at mid ranges on medium sized deer (fallow) and pigs. At 250-350 yards, it's not quite exiting on shoulder shots: lovely expansion along with great penetration. It does tend to exit at under 200yds on small game, but a lot of guys like that: I think it's suitable for anything up to Sambar, or even larger, provided you do your bit right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 270 WSM 150 gr Fusion Have not had the space or time to set up reloading equipment. Ran out of handloads. Picked up a couple of boxes of Fusion 150 gr for 270 WSM. Accuracy good, Penetration good. Have shot several animals from close range up to 425 yards (Moose at 425). Excellent cartridge. Wish the bullets were available for reloading.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much penetration! Terrible design. I bought a few boxes of 130 grain .270 win. ammo before deer season to try them out and here are my results. These are no more accurate than the power shock so they are useless to me for practice and they are not nearly as god as the Vital Shock Nosler Partitions however much cheaper. These are not worth the money. I Shot a small black tail deer that weighed about 110 pounds from 45 feet and the bullet merely passed through it like it wasn't there. there was no expansion at all and the deer barely even noticed. From that distance, it should have sent that deer flying. Then, the deer began to sprint away so as soon as it turned to go into the woods, I had a split second to shoot it again which put it on the ground. After further inspection, the second shot unfortunately hit it in the stomach but the first went in between the ribs, missed the shoulder, and went in between the heart and the lungs. Since there was no expansion, I couldn't even find the hole until I skinned it because it wasn't even bleeding from a direct hit from that distance. DO NOT WAST YOU MONEY. buy the more expensive Vital Shock loaded with the Nosler Partitions and you will be happy you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible accuracy and terminal performance I had used a competitor's ammo for years and loved the price and terminal performance but was not happy with the accuracy. I tried the 150 gr. Fusion in .308 and I was amazed at the tightness of the groups I was getting from my old Remington 760. I had my doubts about the bullet holding together as well as the other one but I have killed several animals now with the Fusion and I am always very pleased with the result. Whether I take a shoulder shot or a boiler room shot the result is always the same. The farthest I have seen a deer move after the shot is about 20 yards on a heart/lung and DRT on a shoulder shot. I like the price, love the accuracy, and can't beat the terminal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate and good on deer in the 270 WIN I've been shooting fusions for good while in several rifle. The bullet is a great performer at standard 270 Winchester speeds. Shot a 6 pt buck at 125 in the shoulder and it poked right through. Exit was about half dollar sized. I got a big doe at 250 yard. Just behind the shoulder. Same wound, same performance. 270 WSM Guys,.. I hear a lot of you complain about 130 grain bullets exploding. When I do Its seems you're shooting under 200 yards. I've also seen it in person. You're doing two things wrong. First,.. you need to be shooting a 150 gr bullet, second you need to be shooting lungs, hearts, and necks under 200 yards. It the speed with the lighter bullets that's your problem not just the bullet. That and shooting the shoulder. 270 WSM is crazy fast. You having the same issues the 270 WBY guys have had for years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This bullet will not not penetrate deer-sized game When hit in the shoulder by this bullet, I had complete disintegration of the bullet with two different deer, and the loss of both. This bullet does not have the appropriate design to hold up at the speeds generate by the .270 Win. Short Magnum.
