Federal Fusion Ammunition is loaded with a specialized bullet, perfect for deer sized game, that features an electrochemically bonded lead core to copper jacket, eliminating the possibility of a core/jacket separation. The flat nose rifle bullet is the perfect design for use in tubular magazines of your favorite 30-30 Winchester rifle. This design delivers exceptional accuracy and devastating terminal performance which delivers an impact that radiates lethal shock throughout the target. This energy is optimized through mass weight retention, a top-secret tip-skiving process and superior bullet integrity. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
Product Info for Federal Premium FUSION (FN) .30-30 Winchester 170 grain Fusion Soft Point Centerfire Rifle Ammunition
Fusion was the first rifle ammunition specifically built for deer hunting—and it’s still the best, offering the largest expansion and highest weight retention in head-to-head comparisons against the competition. With a molecularly fused jacket and a pressure-formed core, Fusion transfers maximum energy on target.
The .30-30 Winchester/.30 Winchester Center Fire cartridge was first marketed in 1895 for the Winchester Model 1894 lever-action rifle. The .30-30 (or “thirty-thirty”), as it is most commonly known, and the .25-35 were offered that year as the United States’s first small-bore sporting rifle cartridges designed for smokeless powder. Since its introduction, it has been surpassed by many cartridges in the long-range shooting attributes of speed, energy, and trajectory, yet remains in widespread use because of its practical effectiveness in forested hunting situations
One reason for the .30-30’s popularity among deer hunters is its light recoil. Average recoil from a typical 150-grain load at 2,390 feet per second (730 m/s) in a 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) rifle is 10.6 foot-pounds (14.4 J) of felt recoil at the shooter’s shoulder, about half that of a comparable rifle chambered for the .30-06 Springfield. Among some hunters, though, the .30-30 has been replaced by cartridges such as the .243 Winchester, 7mm-08 Remington, and 6.5 Creedmoor, which also offer light recoil along with more speed, energy, and a flatter trajectory.
