Federal Fusion Components

*ges802 said: Hey everyone, I'm looking at reloading with Federal Fusion bonded projectiles, however I CAN NOT FIND ANY IN CANADA... Indeed, my searching skills have brought me to halt, therefore I'm now relying on you, CGN'ers to assist me :) 1. Where may I find Federal Fusion projectiles - FB308F4 .308 180-grain Fusion SP OR 2. What would be the next best alternative with almost identical characteristics as the 30-06 180 GR bullet. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Regards,

Who owns Federal ammo, Blount. Who owns Blount Alliant Tech systems. What bullet manufacturer does Blount own, answer Speer. So I'm thinking the Fusion bullets are made by Speer, perhaps there is a Speer bullet that is bonded that will shoot in your rifle like a Fusion. FS

Oddly enough, I recall reading in Precision Shooting magazine that the bullet federal uses in it's Fusion ammo is made by Speer (they are owned by the same parent company), so you could just buy their bullets and use them. - dan

*ges802 said: Perfect. I believe I found the projectile. .308 180GR Grand Slam.

J*rdan Smith said: Yup, I was just going to say that the OP may want to look at the Speer Deep-curl, which is a Fusion look-alike. The Grand Slam is not the same as the Deep Curl or the Fusion.

*ges802 said: Those Deep Curls are a week new, don't think anyone will have them anytime soon, Thanks for the assist everyone

nr*t said: I haven't seen any pictures of the Deep Curl bullets.. Here is a discussion about them at 24HrCampfire site: http://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/3689992/LIst_of_new_Deep_Curl_bullets_#Post3689992
