Default Federal Fusion .270 150 grain

The last time I saw this round for sale anywhere (watching Ammoseek) was September. Federal customer service gave me a boilerplate non-answer on if they would run it again in the future.

Does anyone have an idea why they stopped making this? 130gr is pretty available, but the 150 is the only decent bullet one of my rifles will put in 1" groups and I'm down to one box.

Same with 7mm-08 140gr. Can't find it anywhere. Ended up buying 2 boxes of Core-Lokt just to have something to shoot with.

IMO it is because 150 grain is the very top end of grain weight for .270 Win. I’ve shot quite a few from different gun manufacturers and they have all shot 130’s much better. It’s never even been close.

I use the Fusions 130ís with great results. Will they not group well in your rifle ?
Plenty for deer and hogs IMHO.

I havenít tried 130s yet, but this is the rifle I also take for elk. I shot Federal 150 Partition in it before those went AWOL

I guarantee you the Elk wonít be able to tell you the difference between 130 & 150 grain Fusions 😉. Iíd bet money the 130ís would penetrate better and the wound channel would be just as good as the 150ís.
