Federal Premium launched its Fusion line of ammunition in 2005 as the first rifle ammunition designed specifically for deer hunting, asserting that the bullet’s skived tip and molecularly fused jacket combine to offer the highest weight retention and largest expansion of any bullet in its class.

The affordably priced ammo proved popular, and now, in a nod to deer hunters who have flocked to the 6.5 Creedmoor for its long-range accuracy and comparatively mild recoil, Federal has introduced a Fusion load in that caliber.

Federal says the load’s 140-grain bullet is a boat-tail design in order to maximize its ballistic coefficient, which contributes to long-range accuracy.

Four of the new rifles are priced below the $500 mark and the others aren’t far off, making them affordable for average shooters.

The 6.5 Creedmoor was introduced in 2008, gaining popularity a few years later when long-range shooting competitors using Precision rifles saw how perfectly the cartridge fit their needs, routinely delivering sub-minute-of-angle groups.

List price is $32.95 for a box of 20 rounds. Get details at Federal’s Fusion page.
