Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shoots Great - Opens Up As Advertised I've been shooting this round for a few years during white tail deer season and have never an issue with it in the slightest. I recently recovered a bullet from a deer and validated that it opens up just as advertised. This bullet shoots great and feeds flawlessly into semi-automatic rifles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most accurate and best performing on game. I shoot the 165’s out of my .308. They are the most accurate round I’ve found for my Remington.308 tactical. I just used them for the first time in the field. I had a 90 yard hard quartering to shot on a big bodied whitetail. The performance was devastating... breaking the right shoulder, turning the vitals to jelly, and cleanly exiting through the opposite side behind the front shoulder. The deer made it 30 feet and had expired in seconds. Couldn’t be happier with their performance and price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from terrific bullet I have a Sako rifle and tried various ammo and the fusion was the most accurate. I was shooting 1.5 MOA at 200 yards. I decided to use this over more premium bullets for a cow hunt I drew. We ran into horrible conditions and were about to give up after stalking elk we had seen form 3/4 mile and it briefly cleared up and the elk appeared at about 200 yards down a 30 degree slope. 1 shot with a 300 Win Mag. The elk went about 40 yards . Bullet went through rib on one side, took out lungs and had a hole in the heart. The bullet was found on the opposite side stopped by the hide. Perfect mushroom and I cleaned it up and it weighted 173.6 grains. I don't think I'll be questioning whether I need the premium bullets from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best -06 bullet Hands down the most accurate bullet for my Ruger M77 30-06. Have shot many deer with this bullet with exc. results. I handload and it's very hard to beat this factory load for accuracy and the price is right. My whitetail buck this year was 340 yds. and dropped dead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My gun loves this ammo Been using this ammo at the range only so far, but have been having great results shooting it through my Ruger Gunsite Scout rifle with 18" barrel. At 100 yards I am shooting sub MOA, at 200 yards, for which I have my rifle scope sighted in, I am shooting about 1.4" - 1.6" groups. The gun and the ammo are certainly doing their part, and I look forward to putting this to the test performing some field shooting prior to the WI gun deer opener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat Fusion for combination of value, accuracy and performance. The Fusion ammunition performed well at the range for hunting requirements, delivering 1.4 moa groups on average at 200 metres, and 1 moa or better at 100 metres. Range conditions have been less than ideal with wind and rain. Rifle is a Vanguard 2 in 308 win. In the field, Fusion ammunition performed very effectively on mule deer for myself and hunting partner. My partner's groups with Fusion were 1/2 the size of his previous ammo's groups. Target practice is much more affordable.
