Federal Fusion in .350 Legend

Federal Fusion in .350 Legend

From Federal

The .350 Legend cartridge offers higher velocities than any straight-wall, deer-hunting cartridge. Federal initially launched the 350 Legend cartridge into its product catalog by offering two soft-point 180-grain options in its Power-Shok and Non-Typical lines. Now, Federal upgrades its product mix by adding a molecularly bonded Fusion load in the lighter weight of 160 grains. Shipments of this product have begun to arrive at dealers.

“The .350 Legend delivers superior ballistics and fast velocities for a straight-wall cartridge. It has become quite popular because it’s legal for hunting in many areas where bottleneck centerfire rifle cartridges are prohibited,” said Federal Centerfire Product Manager Eric Miller. “Fusion is one of our most loved product lines because it offers best-in-class performance. Offering .350 Legend in our trusted Fusion lineup is something we know deer hunters will appreciate.”

The .350 Legend cartridge touts significantly less recoil than 450 Bushmaster and more energy than .223 Rem. It’s an ideal fit for compact, maneuverable MSRs and bolt-action rifles. It also delivers ample energy to take down any buck.

Finding the right cartridge for long distance can be a challenge, but the experts I interviewed provided some sound advice.

Fusion provides the largest expansion and highest weight retention in its class, making it the ideal choice for this modern straight-wall cartridge. With a molecularly fused jacket and a pressure-formed core, Fusion transfers maximum energy on target with reliable, tag-filling accuracy.
