Here in the midwest, the plains are shimmering with heat right now but the fact is that early deer season is only a few months away. In the plains states, once you move west of the Missouri river basin particularly, the deep wooded hills open up into vast rolling plains which stretch for miles. A brush gun like the venerable .30-30 or a slug gun works wonders in dense underbrush, but not not for the long shot.
The .270 Winchester has been around for the long shot for a long time. Derived for the .30-06 Springfield, the case is simply necked down to accommodate a .270 caliber bullets, which adds excellent trajectory to the already hard-hitting aught six, while losing very little in terms of knock down ability.
The Federal 150 grain Fusion is a boat-tail design which employs a soft point tip to maximize the wound channel. At 2,850 fps at the muzzle and carrying nearly 2,350 ft lbs of energy, this round hits with authority and loses very little in terms of trajectory until out nearing 400 yards.
When you are sorting out gear and pull out your trusty .270 deer gun, set aside your trusty ammo and give a look to the highly-accurate, very reliable Federal Fusion and fills those tags.
