Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further, if your rifle likes these! I shot several 180 gr. rounds through my Ruger #1 30-06 to get ready for a moose hunt booked in 2020. These Federal Fusion printed 3 shots, (bench) at 100 yards that could be covered with a quarter. Cleaned my rifle and waited for deer season. Been hunting for about 50 years.Deer season. Parked my truck, finished my coffee, took out my rifle, started to walk to my deer spot, about 15 minutes after I arrived. It was about 32 degrees, no wind and just had daylight. I looked up before crossing into the open and saw a nice buck, but a ways out. I put my shooting sticks into position, rested my rifle containing one of my Fusion 180gr. and looked through my scope, yep, still there, broadside just eating some field corn. I guessed the yardage on the plus side of 400 yards, held up on my crosshairs and squeezed the trigger. I heard the sharp crack of the round and saw the buck make about three steps and fall to the ground. I don't think you ever get past that "wow" feeling when you make a good clean shot on a great game animal. My father, a farmer, came out and as near as we could tell, stepping off the distance, just shy of 500 yards! The Fusion went right through the heart and did it's job like a champ. Eight point, 202 lbs. Thank You, Federal Cartridge Thank you Federal Fusion. Can't wait to take on one of those moose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I love these out of my stock Savage 110 in 30-06. I can consistently group under 1" at 100yd, and I am no competitive shooter. Every animal I have shot has dropped in its tracks, including a 250 pound boar and a 300+ pound (dressed) red deer at just under 250 yards. They are a great combination of accuracy and energy. My favorite round-rifle combination!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fusion bullets are excellent! I shoot them in .300 WM, .30-06, .270, and 7mm-08. They are a very well constructed bonded bullet that expands well on most game. They don't break apart on big bones, and are accurate in the most finicky of rifles. They have been 100% reliable and consistent. For the price, you really can't beat them for all North American game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dang near the best! Shoots great. I average 5 or 6 Sitka Blacktails a year at all ranges. In 20+ deer, I've only had the bullet come apart inside the deer once—as compared to full lead many times before Fusion. I'm big on minimal bloodshot, and Fusion is tops. Lots of instant kills, plenty of power at all ranges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bullet for the price. I have killed several deer with this bullet. The expansion is everything I expected. Great bullet!
