    Oh SO. When can we expect the news? Can you share any information with us? Bullets or ammo. Maybe both?. Thanks

    Tease.

    Very nice, did you guys find what length barrel they are using for their load data?

    fusion msr is typically 20" barrels at least in 308 that's what they use. I expect it to be one of the better rounds on the market if their past ammo in 308, 762x39 223 etc etc is any indication. Both my 308's shoot the fusion ammo extremely well and the MSR ammo is hot. Leaves the 22" barrel around 2875 fps. Lightly bonded bullet. I expect it will be around 2600 fps in the grendel for a 20" barrel, probably around .450 bc and it will probably stay together a little better than the hornady sst

    We've had several threads started on this already.

    I found out a few months ago. JASmith and I confirmed it at Federal's booth, and had some great conversations with their bullet engineers about the 120gr Fusion in terms of expansion threshold as well.

    Guess I should have bought that box of Berger 130g AR hybrid in 6.5 I found at the gun show today. Can't remember the price but almost bought home the box to reload.

    Went with the Nos 129g ABLR instead.

    129gr ABLR is the bullet you want in that weight class for hunting if money isn't an object or if you have an SBR.

    Is this ever coming out? I have been holding off buying my next case until I try this stuff.
