Thread: Federal Fusion 150 grn in .270 Winchester

    Federal Fusion 150 grn in .270 Winchester

    Seeing as how this ammunition performed rather well the other week on the Roe Buck I went back and enquired as to if he still had anymore on the shelf and the answer is yes. price is 16:40 per box so methinks I will get a couple of boxes. The last two boxes cost me a bit less but I think that was a mistake on his part.

    What do you think? is that a good price?

    Any ammunition for .270 that shoots well and costs less than 1 a pop is worth stocking up on. It doesn't kill deer any deader than the stuff at 55 a box...and with powder and bullet prices rocketing up, you'd be hard pressed to reload much cheaper than that.

    My buddy in Eire swears by Federal Fusion for his .270 and kills everything with it, including red stags and sika hybrid stags. It certainly worked well enough when I shot a large goat recently with his rifle and ammunition.

    Buy them up.

    I have been working out reloading costs recently, it is not as cheap as it used to be.

    Powder, primer and bullet are running from .55 to 0.70 per round depending on calibre. This completely ingnores the cost of the brass, your equipment and your time.

    If you are not shooting big volumes or an exotic calibre, hand loading is getting to be less attractive.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Thanks guys I had sort of crunched the numbers of a reload for the 25-06 which is about the same as the .270 cost wise and at that price there is not much in it really. Now I do shoot a fair bit but it's spread across several different cartridges and calibres. In fact I have just been testing a used 8x56 scope and it's looking good so far . In fact I am thinking of putting it on the 25-06 so the S&B 6x42 can go back where it belongs and where I robbed it from to try out the 25-06.


    Yes I WILL pick up a couple of boxes and then in a week or so get another couple. Simply don't have the funds to buy more right now .

    I've had a couple of boxes of this fusion gear, locked away as 'cheap emergency, run out of everything else ammo'. To my amazement when I tried them yesterday morning they were grouping every bit as well as the home loads... I wish I could find more for the 18 on the box!

    Well I popped over there tonight and picked up two boxes of the 150 grain fusion .270 and in a Fortnight I will get a couple more finaces permitting. Checked the batch code and they are form the same batch which is nice. Oh DC .270 16:40 per box .

    16.40 per box.... I dribbled a bit over that! If I can find more for around that price I'll be stocking up and forgetting about the home loads for a while. (Nosler partitions are due this week though so I'll give them a whirl first)

    Crikey where is this place???? I'm paying 26 a box for 120gn Federal Fusion for my 25-06. Apparently that's trade price too. Have you tried the above ammo and calibre on Red Stags, if so what were the results please?
