    At walmart today and I saw 308 ammo on the shelves for the first time in forever. They were called deer thugs and had a 165 and 180 gr bonded bullet. Are these the same as fusion with a different logo?

    I've never heard of it; so i looked at Federal's website. No mention of it there -a bit odd as far as a company with a marketing division and a web presence goes.

    I had never heard of it either. Looks like maybe a walmart exclusive deal? Anyways I bought 3 boxes (damn limits) and plan to try them out this week. Sure looks like federal fusion.

    I think it is the Deep Curl bullet, the flat base version of the Fusion, I noticed they use the same odd weight in 243 (90gr) whereas the Fusion is 95gr.
