In 2005, Federal introduced the Fusion line of ammunition designed specifically for whitetail deer hunters. This new bullet technology provides exceptional terminal performance designed to make quick, clean, one-shot kills!
Fusion bullets undergo an electro-chemical process which joins the core to the copper jacket eliminating core-jacket separation. The result of this process is increased weight retention upon and through impact helping the bullet to deliver a high impact lethal shock as it expands through the target.
The process of manufacturing Fusion bullets starts at the core. First, a lead core is pressure-formed to provide great expansion and strength. Second, the copper jacket is deposited onto the core one molecule at a time to ensure total integrity. Third, the top and base of the projectile are pressure-formed to specifications optimizing terminal performance on deer. Lastly, a "top secret" skived tip is designed to deliver the unmatched combination of long-range expansion potential and short-range toughness.
Fusion ammunition is manufactured in Anoka, Minnesota. This ammunition is new production, brass-cased, boxer-primed, and reloadable.
