Deer hunters migrating to the long-range precision 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge have been faced with limited factory-ammo options; the new offering from Fusion may solve the issue for many

Fusion rifle ammunition was crafted and built specifically for deer hunting, offering large bullet-expansion and high weight-retention. It’s a perfect match for the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge, which has quickly become a great choice for deer hunters looking for long-range accuracy, flat trajectory, mild recoil and tag-punching power.


Paired with the Fusion bullet’s molecular-fused jacket and pressure-formed core, the new load provides deep penetration and stopping power.

Fusion hunting ammunition is available in 34 other loads from .223 Remington to .45-70 Government.
