So, I got a lot of these to sell but I am unsure as to what they are. These were pulled from Federal Ammunition and were sold to me as Fusions, but I have sold TONS of fusions before and all of them have a boat tail design. So, are these just a new design for fusion bullets or are they something else? Testing them it appears as though they are indeed a bonded bullet like the fusions. Anybody seen these before?

These are .308 and I have 150 grain and 165 grain ones.

I tend to try a LOT of different bullets out and these are nothing like any bullets I have ever seen. I too am interested to find out what they are. Any one got a newer Fusion that they could pull and see if the bullet matches??

that rebated base with the dome makes me think lapua lockbase, but the ones ive seen have a much longer boat tail...

Maybe they are the "DeepCurl" bullet, what caliber are they ?

A caliber and weight might help.

Any idea on pricing yet? I would take some in 165s.

they would be the same price as the 180 grain fusions on my website.

Well, I guess there's only one way to find out.

All of us just have to buy some and try them out ... :D

Jake, I know your quantities go down to 250, but have you considered offering an assortment of 500 mixed bullet sample pack (like 100 of five different bullets)?

I can do that, it would just be a matter of figuring out a price because some stuff I don't make very much money on while other things i make much more.

Dirt Digger,
I did not get a PM so maybe try an email?

Those are cool Jake! I should add to anyone reading this thread that Jake is Grade A+ to do business with. The only guy I would buy jacketed bullets from, he is a vendor and a contributing member. <Advertisement off>

Anyway, those are some cool looking bullets.

Just fyi. I have put these up on the website for purchase. I compared them to fusions and it appears as though everything is identical to the fusions except for the base. Since they were sold to me as fusions I guess they are just a new profile of fusion. If anyone finds out differently please let me know, but until then I am going to go with what the supplier has said.

I am going to try to cut one in half today to see what they look like on the inside.
